Some nurses think its helpful some not so much (according to prior NA threads).
Anyhow, I'm actually waiting a response to see if I got accepted to nursing school to start this January 2014, so stoked.
While I wait, I decided to go for my CNA certification. I like it, I feel like it'll help me because I have no prior medical experience whatsoever. Not that CNA and RN jobs are alike but at least I've touched, interacted per se with patients.
So, if you have time, money to pay for the training and want to do it, I say go for it. You'll feel less awkward when nursing clinicals come and you have to invade patients privacy
