How do I get first CNA hospital job?Register Today!
This is a discussion on How do I get first CNA hospital job? in Colorado Nursing, part of United States Nursing ... Hi, just wondering if anyone has any advice. I have been working in home health for the past year...by ashaffer Sep 12, '12Hi, just wondering if anyone has any advice.
I have been working in home health for the past year and a half as a CNA and I am currently going to RN school. At clinicals all the nurses are saying that to get a RN hospital job I really need to be working now as a CNA in the hospital.
Any advice? I have been sending out resumes and haven't had much luck. I need a PRN or weekend job in Denver area b/c of RN school.
Thanks to anyone who has some input!
