I am a Registered Nurse in the PHILIPPINES awaiting news from the CA BON.
I recently was hired as a Medical Assistant in-training for a clinic. And I was expected to know how to perform blood withdrawal because RNs here have already trained IVF and Blood withdrawal before they graduate nursing school
But recently registered nurses in the Philippines, they get this training once the hospital hires them because IVF and blood withdrawal training are paid by the employers.
So since I have a month worth of experience as a Medical Assistant here in the US I have a good chance on landing on an entry-level job related in the Medical Field.
So while I am waiting for any news from the CA BON, I was thinking of getting an IV/Blood Withdrawal Course so that when I get hired anywhere I would have knowledge to do it.
But the problem is these certifications might need me to be an LVN or a RN here in CA. I am still inquiring. And even if I do take the class the certification will not be given to be until I get an LVN or RN license
Do you guys think that is a good idea to go for those classes ?
