    Most hospitals will hire nursing students who have had one semester of clinical experience or fundamentals. Also, if you can get a letter from your nursing school saying that you passed fundamentals of nursing & have had XX hours of clinical experience, you can send that in with the CNA application rather than take a course. You will then get a letter in the mail telling you to get fingerprinted, where to go & send that back in. Then you can schedule a test date, get your CNA cert. & work anywhere. Good luck passing the NCLEX. I took the Kaplan class & it was phenomenal, I highly recommend it.
