I have a BA and I am looking into getting my BSN. Someone suggested that I get my CNA first to get experience while waiting to get into a program. They indicated that I would be ahead of the game. Does it make sense to do it that way? I work full-time. Will I be able to gain valuable experience on the side (nights, weekends). Any suggestions on CNA programs(other than OSU-OKC) I can do while working?
