    Wackyj,

    If you are already in Nursing school, as oppose to being a pre-nursing student. Then you MAY be able to work as a cna after your first semester. This would save you both time and money.

    Several of the people in my class work as pca/student nurses (cna's). They are not certified, never took the certification test. You can check with your local hospitals to see if this is an option in your state.

    Best of luck,
    Jay
