Im 22, just became certified in Minnesota and now I'm working on transferring to Maryland, while taking an acute care course at the local community college here. I have no working experience, haven't lived in Baltimore since I was a kid, but looking to begin my nursing career there in Maryland.
Does anyone know of good places to work as a new cna? Preferably hospital setting. I have no vein puncture, EKG, or catheter experience from my CNA training, however. (I notice a lot of jobs in the hospitals there require these skills).
Are there certain living areas I should stay away from? I'm seeking a studio to start out because online I'm seeing a lot if expensive housing in the city. ( I will also be reliant on public transit. )
I also have 2 years of my nursing degree started but have intentions of completing my BSN maybe at UMD or TU as a transfer. Possibly doing prerequisites at BCCC...
This a pretty loaded post but, Any comments or advice???
