hello everyone

  1. Hello everyone. As you can tell I just joined on. I am thinking of getting back into the medical field. After High School I took some courses and passed the test and was CNA. I worked in a nursing home, after a bad accident I couldn't handle the work restrictions. Now about 6 years later I am thinking of going back to school and going for my LPN or maybe RN. I don't know the steps that I need to take to retake my test. Do I have to retake the whole CNA coarse? I found a school close to me and almost all the generals are online. So I am very impressed and will going in over the next couple weeks and speak with the admissions office.

    Thank you and have a great night

    Welcome! I am new to this site as well. Just go for your RN and be done with it. You should not have to retake your CNA course to get into nursing.
    Best Wishes:roll
