    Congratulations! I take mine on the 18th. The low pay does not have me too excited but I'm doing this as a stepping stone because I'm going into the nursing program. Where I work now I get paid pretty well (as an insurance agent) and am not looking forward to the lower pay, that's for sure.

    Congratulations!! I start my CNA program June 8th. We're definitely going into this for the experience, not the pay. =) Like stewartfamily, I'm leaving a much higher paying job to pursue an RN degree and will work as a CNA while in nursing school. The paycut is temporary and may make all the difference in the world when pursuing that newgrad RN position. Those working in facilities already seem to be the most likely to get the newgrad position. Good luck to both of you!!

    Congrats! I go on the 17th to take my state exam and I am nervous. I am not worried about the written part of the exam but I don't know about doing the check offs with someone standing over my shoulder. I have to pass both sections to be able to get into the RN program in Fall. Any advice to working through the nerves for the clinical section?
