Hello everybody! I am 19 years old and I hope to become a Registered Nurse in the future. I recently just took a "break" (until summer) from my CNA job. I felt that the job was not my cup of tea, however, I did enjoy interacting with the patients. Anyways, I read that an individual can become an ER Tech with a CNA License. I was wondering, how does one do so if the scope of practice is completely different?
If I apply for an ER Tech job at a hospital, will they give me a couple days of training? I did some research about it and I even read that hospitals prefer ER Techs to have prior CNA training, even though they do not have any experience in the emergency room. Thank you for your time and help!
