I'm in my second semester of nursing school
and we just started going to the hospitals for clinicals. I'd really like to get a job in the hospital as a cna or pct. But from my understanding to become a cna the programs usually last 3-6 months, which I wouldnt have the time for, considering I'm already a full time nursing student. It also seems those of you who work as a cna while in nursing school became one prior to starting. Most of what a cna does i'm sure I already learned first semester. So I was just wondering what options I would have to becoming ceritified as a cna? and what the process is like? Are there programs that you can take that are tailored to what you already know, meaning instead of doing the whole 3-6 months i can pass out of things I already know?
