- Feb 7 by edimoQuote from jonesel9I landed my job by searching various hospital websites and checking out their employment postings under the general/admin area...that's usually where they would come up@edimo or @ original poster how do you go about finding these positions in your state?I am interested in the transporter and unit secretary while I am in school. Do I need to call you the original poster to get started with either one of these position?
- Feb 7 by TheCommuterQuote from jonesel9Check out the jobs/careers section of hospital websites to see if any job openings are posted. Also walk into nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and group homes during business hours (Monday through Friday from 9am to 5pm) and see if they're accepting applications for any of these jobs.@edimo or @ original poster how do you go about finding these positions in your state?I am interested in the transporter and unit secretary while I am in school.

- Feb 7 by buytheshoes11This is a great article. Several nurses I know started off as dietary aides in the hospital then "moved up the ranks" to become CNAs and eventually RNs. It's nice to know that there are multiple ways to get a foot in the door!
- Feb 7 by bigsick_littlesickOh and I forgot to mention another non-CNA hospital job would be to work as a CPD tech (Central Processing and Distribution). I think most other places call them Central Distribution but that's just what they call them at our hospital. We've had a couple of them become RTs.

- Feb 12 by ContraryRockI wouldn't recommend working as a CMA while you're in school. There is very little flexibility in scheduling- it is usually a 9-5, 40 hr job. I worked as a evening/night unit secretary in the NICU- tons of study time as it's usually pretty quiet there- and now as unlicensed support assistant in a surg unit. Once you finish fundamentals (in my state, at least) you can apply for a CNA license through the board. Once you have that, you have a lot of options- student nurse, PCT, sitter, nursing support, etc.
