I'm 16 and I live in Texas. I would REALLY love to become a CNA. I know other people from my highschool that have become CNAs through HOSA, but I cannot be in HOSA. So, I am not sure if i could go through training at a nursing home, or of the only way to get training at 16 is through HOSA. I would love to do this durning the summer while i have time.
I would certainly recommend working in an activities department at any long term care facility (nursing home). You will have a lot more fun doing crafts, playing games with elderly people and will be around many CNA's to decide if that job is right for you. Good luck and have fun!

I was wandering that myself.. I live in Texas as well.. I'm home-schooled right now but after this school year is over, i'm going to try to get a G.E.D. and then take some CNA classes. (hopefully) I'm afraid if i do this though no one will hire me. I'm gonna talk to some people that work at the VA where i live, i use to volunteer up there for about 4 years and then i got to high school and was involved with sports so i didnt have time, and then this year im home-schooled so im trying to i guess you could say get my life started. haha.. but im not sure how it will go.
if you have any information please PM me.
