I'm in the process of doing a career change, applying to second degree BSN programs, and it certainly would be very helpful to have my certification again--hopefully doing some CNA work while in school will help me in the job market when I graduate. I never became NYS certified but I'm very confident I could pass the exam without the coursework. Will New York let you skip the course if you can pass the exam and can show you once held certification? Unfortunately, I cannot get back on the registry in MN since more than 24 months have lapsed since my last job as a CNA - that certainly would make the transfer situation easier. It seems, at least in NYC, most CNAs pay out of pocket for training--if that's the case I'd love to save money if I can.
