Hi, I'm an LPN student in the beginning of a 14 month program. I just got my CNA certification, and I'm debating taking a CNA job while I'm in school. I'm currently waitressing, and I make good money so I wouldn't want to totally leave my job. I'd have to probably work 2 overnight shifts a week, 7p-7a, as a hospital CNA, and wait tables a couple other days. I just don't know if the benefits of working the CNA job outweigh the pay cut I'd be taking...plus I wouldn't be getting any sleep for those two days a week since my classes are 730-245. Any suggestions?
