I am a current LPN student that will graduate in May 2011. I recently became CNA certified because I really need a job, and I wanted to find a position in a LTC facility where I can branch into the LPN role after I graduate. Does anyone know of ANY LTC facilities that will hire a new CNA? All of the LTC facilities that I have applied to state they are either looking for someone with 6mos - 1yr experience. Whats a new CNA to do?!? I thought my experience in LTC facilities for the past 10 mos while in the LPN program would help me out, but I am not hearing back from any of the faciilties I applied to.
Btw.....I live in Fairfield County (not picky, willing to travel)
