    Some hospitals, after your 1st. Year of nursing, school, will hire you as pt. care technician....

    Some nursing homes have "in house" cna programs....

    Depends on the hospital. In my area most hospitals require either a CNA or the first semester of nursing clinicals, but that must be a loose rule because I've run across PCT that meet neither of those requirements. I remember talking with one that was in her first year of college with the ultimate goal of becoming a Dr and another one that had been a tech for years with no prior experience and no plans to pursue any other schooling.

    My suggestion would be to read the job listings of your local hospitals.
