A good place for a p/t job as a CNA in Lex area while a student?

  1. 0
    Hi

    I'm looking for a p/t job as a CNA to see me through the rest of nursing school.
    Ideally I'd like to work Fri & Sat 7p-7a.

    Anyplace you would recommend or advise me to steer clear of?
    I'm assuming I'd most easily get a job at a LTC facility.
    I was also thinking of home health as a home health aide. Just looking for something as low stress as possible (hence the home health aide), at the same time staying in the medical field. I know a CNA position in a LTC place would not be low stress!

    My dream would be to land a position on a mother-baby unit - but I'm not sure that'll happen too quickly.....

    I don't know what positions are currently open, but I know that at Georgetown Community Hospital we are always looking for CNAs. I live in Lexington and work in Georgetown. It actually takes me less time to get to Georgetown than it does for my husband to get to his job and he works in Lexington. When I worked as a CNA the most rewarding job I had was as a home health aide for Hospice. I think that the Hospice Care Unit is a good place to work also. It's at St. Joe, but you have to apply at the Hospice of The Bluegrass on Alexandria Drive. I would be careful of the ltc facilities and make sure you are not walking into a mess. I also think that Central Baptist, St. Joe and Cardinal Hill are nice places to work for CNAs. Good luck to ya!

    Thanks for the response, ronshelle1.
    I'm in Wimore, I have no idea how long it would take me to get to Georgetown, or if would be worth it gas $$ wise.
    I'll look into your suggestions.
    I am actually hoping to get a Fri & Sat 6p-6am or 7p-7a shedule, that would be ideal for me. Just dont know who hires for those specific shifts.
