Here is my situation. I finished my CNA class a couple weeks ago, sent my application for the board exam through my class (so that all of my classmates can take the exam together), but at this point we still don't know when we can take the exam (the class that finished in July took their exam in the first week of September, so I am not sure how long I have to wait to take mine). Anyway, I applied to some caregiver jobs while waiting, but background check, reference check are taking forever. I thought I did fine in all my interviews, but still don't have a solid job offer. The positions I applied are mostly in private homes. I can't find anything in the hospital. Most hospital patient care technician jobs requires 1 year experience as well as CNA certification. I haven't talked to the HR in the hospital but do you think I should? What would you do if you were in my shoes? The waiting is killing my confidence.
