why did you want to be a cna?
- 1Jan 16, '12 by mamaxmariai was a year out of highschool... no idea what i wanted to do with myself and was sick of bartending and waitresing... so I did a Medical Assistant program (my friend was doing it, so i figured why not i need to be doing something).. Got a job in a hospital and eventually became a PCT in the ICU... ICU is what made me want to become a nurse
and now im on my way there :-)
it's crazy how thing just kind of fall into place and life takes you exactly where you need to go...

My best friend called me up and asked me to take the class w/ her.
Shoot! I was going to go to art school!
Sometimes I feel bad I didn't just go to art school, but being a CNA was a huge character builder for me.
I was a CNA for 23 years.
Loved it and sometimes still wish I was doing it.
Hope to teach it and love to train newbies.
It is so underrated but so incredibly valuable.Last edit by Hygiene Queen on Jan 19, '12 : Reason: I need to learn to proof-read.
- 0Jan 28, '12 by Buduca SestraI wanted to change careers to nursing and knew that experience is key in any profession. Also I noticed from my previous jobs, that the best leaders are the ones that start at the bottom and work their way up.
I recommend that anyone who wants to be a nurse be a CNA first because if you still want to be a nurse after being a CNA, nursing is definitely the profession for you! :spin:
- 0Feb 1, '12 by vintagemotherI was taking nursing school prereqs and needed to find a job, quickly. I wanted a job in the field of nursing and I wanted a job that would allow me to continue attending school. As a bonus, being certified / working as a CNA will look good on my nursing school applications. I think that I am doing what I'm supposed to be doing.
