I'm reading quite a few posts about students graduating, getting their RN license, but keeping their current jobs as CNA's..how common is this right now? Will the state BON accept this? I'm in Hawaii and can't get through to the executive officer at state board until Wednesday (impatient). For those doing this do you maintain your CNA certification but aren't you held accountable as an RN?

I'm going to answer my own question according to what I found out..RN's can work as NA'S at some facilities but it's up to the facility.
