Hi i am new to this site and just getting started in the nursing field. I live in southeast michigan and i am wondering where to go to get trained to be a nurse assistant? I know washtenaw cc has a program but at the moment nearly all the sections are waitlisted. The only place i can find near me is henry ford cc. There na program is five weeks long which is fine but wcc is only three weeks? Any other sugestions of other places to get trained?
A few other questions: Is it required that you become a cna in order to be a pct?
Can you basicly only get a na a job in a nursing home? I am hoping to try to get a job in a hospital after i get trained but i am not coming across alot of job postings for hospital cna's only pca/pcts.
Also i would appreciate any cna/pcts letting me know what their job is like-what your day on job is like, skills you perform, pay, ect. Any help or info is appreciated! I am new to the medical field. Thanks
