    Hello female Ken. Are you even allowed to work below your license?

    **just received my adscope 603 (?) and for $27, it's WAY better than the cheap $19 Omron I got for my CNA program.
    e.g. on a scale of 1-10 (10 being loudest), Omron's at 4 and Adscope is a 8.

    I'm starting my RN program in January and started working as a CNA earlier this year. I'm currently at a pediatric hospital where I'll do one of my clinical rotations. Everyone I've spoken with has said that the easiest way to get hired after graduation is to prove yourself as a CNA so that's what I'm doing! At my school, one of our admissions requirements is taking a CNA course so that we all have a basic understanding of ADLs; we start clinicals the second week of first semester. I'm not at all nervous about clinicals: I know I'll be comfortable in patient rooms, dealing with families, doctors, and nurses, using the equipment, etc. because I have experience.
