I just applied to the Athens Technical College ADN program here in Athens, GA. I do not expect I will get in as I failed to score high enough on the NLN, and have two classes I need to bring up to A's. Letters go out in April. What I would like to do is get my CNA certification. There is a program in Winder via New Horizons Medical Institute. However, it will only give me certification that allows me to work in skilled nursing facilities, nursing homes, ect. -not the hospital. I'm thinking I'm okay with that, because I really just want to gain some experience before I re-apply to the RN program at ATC. Thoughts? Does anyone know what the job market for CNA's is like in Athens? This is sort of all over the place. Forgive me! Any advice/input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
