Hello! I remember that a few months back I joined the website and I explained my situation, I have turned 21, I had to stop going to college because of how expensive it was, and not only that but I am not allowed to transfer to a community college until I pay off all that I owe. This had me very depressed, at home, no work, with my parents, hoping to find a school I could continue studying in, but nothing. I live in New York City, I found out about ABC training center, which I had always passed by since I live nearby but I just hadn't looked into it. Long story short, I was thinking of taking the Phlebotomy/ekg course, and ended up doing CNA/EKG/Phlebotomy = PCT. I want to work meanwhile, and just start off somewhere.... I have not taken my exam for certification, I was told at school that I am going to be placed at the nursing home for 4 days, and I am very scared to be honest, all I was taught in class was the basics, the lectures, the handouts etc. No actual hands on experience. I am guessing this is what they are placing me at the nursing home for, to train me. Nonetheless, I'm afraid of not knowing what to expect. I've heard horror stories, Lol and I guess that's the problem, I have heard too much of what others have faced that I am afraid of having the same or worst luck. I'm not saying I don't want this, I do, I need the start and the ability to feel a little more independent when it comes to taking care of myself. I sure am glad my parents were willing to help me out all this time. Now it's my turn. I'd love a little push, some encouragement or beginner's experience would be nice.
