The ADN program I'm considering is revamping their program and will now require CNA certification as a pre-req. They are also no longer using the HOAE (Health Occup. Aptitude Exam) but now using the TEAS.
Has anyone else had to obtain CNA certification before they could apply for their nursing program
? The way the current program is set up, at the end of your 1st semester of nursing classes, you could sit for the Nurs. Asst. I and at the end of the 2nd semester, sit for Nurs. Asst. II.
If I pursue this route, it will set me back just a little bit because of having to add another layer (CNA cert.) but I was just curious if this was something wide-spread within other programs out there.
