I am a 1st semester nursing student in Pittsburgh and have been hearing that I can sit for the exam to become a certified nursing assistant after my first semester. Can anyone explain to me the process? I would be especially interested from those of you in Pittsburgh that have gone this route.
I am currently working in an office environment and am trying to think ahead because I know eventually I will need more flexibility in nursing school. My job right now is only in operation M-F 8-5:30pm.
Thank you for your help!!

This is my first post...(so it's special)
I've heard that most nursing students are eligible for CNA testing after a minimum 6 weeks of clinicals. ( Keep in mind that I spend alot of time reading this bb, and I may have just read it or figured it from another post.) It may differ from state to state, but if you ask your nursing program they should be able to give you a more precise answer
Hope this helps
