i find it so frustrating. everyone wants cnas experience, i even read a job add that wanted someone with ten years of experience, but how am i supposed to get any experience if no one will give me the chance to begin to develop some? how can they expect a new cna to have experience? if your a new cna then obviously you haven't been spending your time working as one, you have been in school. most new cna's are young and therefore again you haven't had the time, years, to even get a job in your career field to develop experience. its like having credit; credit card companies, banks, etc. won't give you any credit if you dont have any. well when you're 20 years old, married, and just starting out you obviously have no credit, you cant get any credit if no one will give you any credit.
i feel cheated in the experience portion with employers, its like they are saying that i am not smart enough because i haven't been working in the medical field. how do they know if i'm really good or even really bad at what i do if they don't give me the chance to show them?
