Hi- I'm starting my CNA in a few weeks at Mercy in Des Moines. After I finish my CNA, I will go on the waiting list for DMACC. I already have a BS and JD so this is a second career for me. I'm interested in getting a job at a hospital after I get my CNA while I wait for DMACC. Is it hard to get a job as a CNA in a hospital? Any hospitals in the area that hire CNAs without experience? I'm interested in Cardiac, OB or Psych. Is that unrealistic to think I could get a job as a CNA on any of those floors at a hospital while I wait to get into DMACC?
