I am planning a move to Las Vegas in July/August and am wondering how hard it is likely to be for a brand new CNA with 0 medical experience (but 15+ years of tech support/help desk/training background) to land a Unit Coordinator job.
I was accepted (like everybody is, I guess) but haven't registered for classes yet at CSN to finish gen eds and pre-reqs (pre-nursing).
I have just passed a CNA class and haven't gotten the state cert. exam done yet but will have by the time I move out there. (And will have an application in for a NV endorsement, too.)
On a scale of 0=hopeless; look for LTC CNA work or tech work and have a backup plan to live on for 6 months-or so
to 10=doable if I interview well...
What do you think?? My friends that live out there are concerned it's going to take me forever to get a job of any kind, and that if I don't have one lined up before I come out, I'm going to eat through all my (not very big) savings and wind up broke and homeless. lol (They are much less optimistic types than I am, but I also know optimism doesn't pay the bills.)
