Questions about CNA Programs in New York

  1. 0
    Hi all, I am new to this site and just beginning to consider a career in nursing after 15 years of working in a corporate administrative capacity (currently, Office Manager). I'm 34 and will be attending school for the first time in 17 years. Have a HS diploma w/ a 3.57 GPA, but no college.

    I'm looking for some advice as to respected, intensive CNA programs in New York. I'll be relocating to Long Island in May and feel that this kind of training and subsequent employment would be a good chance to get my feet wet and explore weather I'm really suited for a career in health care.

    Any words of wisdom would be greatly appreciated.


    Thanks!

    I am currently a CNA in the upper NewYork State area. The most important part of being a CNA is that you have a very caring heart. The majority of the people that you take care of may be very ill. If you get the right work it can be easy. If you are not a people preson then it's not for you. This is just one CNA's veiw.
