    Does anyone know of any schools in NJ that have CNA programs for people in nursing school or done with? (While I wait to start working since I won't be licensed until around October)

    Apply to Mountainside Hospital, Overlook Hospital, Morristown Hospital and others in those areas. Some hospitals will hire you as a CNA/PSA because you are in nursing school. No certification or CNA license required.

    I'm not certified yet, though. But since I graduate from Nursing school in July, could I just take the exam? Or is there something more I have to do?

    I know there's a CNA program in Paramus through HoHoKus School. They're pretty well known in the area. Contact info is at the bottom. Here's their site:

    oh also, if you enroll in the lpn program at hohokus- as long as you pass the first semester which includes gerontology with decent grades- the director of nursing can petition to allow you to sit for the CNA license exam.

    If you want to get state certified and want to work anywhere you want in nj with no strings attatched, id go to ace training institute. i graduated last year and was very happy with the school i had chosen. it was easy and fast. definitely prepared me for nursing 1. i felt like i was ahead of the class going through their program.

    heres the link:

    they are approved by the senior service and health dept.

    hope this helps and good luck!
