Whats the difference in a CNA and CNA2

  1. 0
    What can a CNA2 do that a CNA1 cannot? I am in the CNA course now and was hoping to get into a hospital and eventually post partem or L&D. I heard before taking the class that a CNA2 is needed for L&D. I wanna get my foot int he door at a hospital and continue training there. ANy info would be appreciated.

    Different states have different nomenclature. I'm in Oregon and we have CNA2's, but we don't have any such thing as a PCT.

    CNA2's here have advanced training in either restorative care or acute care. In most situations you have to have a certain amount of experience as a CNA before you are accepted into a CNA2 class, and they're limited and hard to find. If I were you, I would google your state Board of Nursing to find out what the requirements are for CNA2 training and where it's offered.
