I am starting the nursing program at CCHS Fall 2010. Last summer, I took a one day CNA course with no clinical and challenged the exam, so now I am a CNA listed on the NC registry. The problem is, as I recently found out, I need a certain amount of clinical experience before I can start the nursing program. I've been trying to get a CNA job since last July, but I have not been able to because of my lack of experience.
Does anyone know of any program where I can just do the clinical portion of the class? I live in Charlotte.
Or does anyone know of any entry level CNA positions open anywhere in Charlotte or near Charlotte? I've tried to get into the CMC sytem, but it's really difficult. I'm open to working at nursing homes, hospitals, pretty much anywhere at this point! Any ideas would be appreciated!!! Time is running out soon for starting the nursing program...
