    Thats the killer, Kate.
    The longggggg wait for that letter!
    You will enjoy Janice Websters class. If you need help, just email her and she responds quickly.
    Be aware the summer classes are more crammed and more intense than the regular length semester classes.
    Good luck!

    That is great news, congrats! Can I ask you a personal question? What is the salary range for a CNA position in a nursing home? I am currently in my first semester ASN at Ivy Tech Indy and am thinking of applying to several places this summer as a CNA. Just curious what range to expect. Thanks!

    Sorry this is late, but boo the pay is around 10/hr, where I did clinicals it was 10.45 to start, so I wouldnt take any less than that. (also, 2 days a week starting out is enough if you don't have to work more than that)

    also...littlemamakt...I sent you a pm about chem online in SB.

    I wonder how employers in this are are about students working in the summers. For instance, if I were to go ahead and do the CNA thing, do you think I could find a job that would allow me to work only in the Summer when I'm not taking classes?
    I don't want to put too much on my plate while I'm in school so I think a full class load, clinical and raising 4 kids by myself is enough during Fall and Spring. Anybody have any experience with this? I'm running around today trying to find child care for the kids on days their school is closed or has half day. I don't want to have to miss class or especially clinical because of Teacher in-service days. Jeremiah Gray tends to have alot of those and it's always Thursday and Friday of the same week. It stinks.

    I went to the Ivy Tech Health Job Fair a few weeks ago and there were facilities there that were hiring for the summer.
