Happy New Year!!!
I hope I am posting this in the proper forum.
I am a 43 year old massage therapist & birth doula, about to begin my CNA 1 and prereq classes at Durham Tech. My plan/hope is to get my CNA license in June and get a job at UNC, while I continue to pursue nursing school. Eventually, I would like to get either my NP or CNM. I have read a few posts about new CNAs not having much success obtaining a hospital position and am wondering if there is anything I should be doing to make myself a better candidate. I am willing to take a position in any department to get experience. Wondering if I should try voluteering as a doula at UNC (since L & D is a long term goal) or what other advice you may have.
Thank you in advance for any reply!
Peace, love & babies,
