Im in RN school and about half way through. I've had CNA experience (two years in home health and 2 years in a LTC). After trying for almost a year to get a CNA job at our local hospital I finally gave up and applied for everything possible and ended up getting a job in dietary.
While I have learned quite a bit about nutrition and diet types but I dont feel there is any more to learn in this department. I currently work 3rd shift and have TONS of downtime. I literally work maybe 3 out of 8 hours a night, so I have plenty of time to study.
On the other hand I have been there long enought to transfer out of the department. I've been looking at several CNA or Tech postions all of which Im qualifed to do. If i did change jobs I'd make more money and be doing more hands on things and could observe the nurses somewhat.
So if you were in my place would you do?
