I'm going back to school in the Fall to, hopefully, obtain my BSN... I'm very excited; however, until then, I'd like to get some clinical experience. I've been thinking about the CNA field...
So, how does one become a CNA? (I live in Kentucky.) What are their duties? Do you recommend this route? Why or why not? What is the average pay for a CNA? Are there other clinical options without having to go through extensive (i.e. long term) courses/education?
I'm currently a stay at home mom, but need to start working soon so I can save up some money - and possibly gain clinical experience - but would like to read your comments and/or suggestions before I put a lot of time into something that may not work out. Thanks for your comments!!!
