About to start my journey

  1. 0
    I just got accepted into vista colleges nursing program. I am so excited. I'm not just doing this for me I'm also doing it for my son . I'm a single parent and I want him to have a good life. The only thing that brings me down at times is that my work seems so unsupportive. I work as a cna. I love my job but want more. Hmmmmm

    How far are you into your program? I am/was having the same issue. I was told yesterday that they will be able to make a per diem position for me. I hopefully will find out more this week about it becasue Im not too familiar with per diem. I just hope Im still making enough..I'm supossed to start school in October. O rientation is in September anad they want a deposit.

    Where do you work if you dont mind me asking? Now I finally found out that I can go per diem but I wasnt aware of them being able to schedule me evenings/overnights Now Im back to not knowing what Im doing. What kind of rules does your company have?

    I work at a nursing home. Their rule is just that I'm required to work 1 shift a month but they will call me if they need me and I can say yes or no.
