    I've heard of NAs hired in CA, but they weren't allowed to touch the patients. They were able to pass out water and observe the CNA, and fetch things like linen, make the beds, set up the areas for the CNAs but that's about it.

    I have been a CNA before, but I had to be recertified because I moved to a different state. My class won't end until mid April, but my instructor informed me that the assisted living place I very much wanted to work for would hire before you graduate. So, I went and filled out an app yesterday, and she called me and asked me to come in on Monday morning. I'm pretty sure I have the job.

    There are some that will hire before you graduate obviously, and I think it's a great way to go ahead and get your foot in the door. Of course, just starting out you may tend to be a bit more nervous and unsure of yourself, but most places let you train with someone before you go out on your own to care for residents.
