Welcome to the site! I'm in a similar situation as you are, although I just completed my CNA licensure exam two days ago. I was as nervous as I can be. Now I know that my nervousness was just silly and my way of overreacting. I became a CNA as a requirement by the RN program that I will begin in August. In order to keep the CNA license, you will have to use it -as you already know. You could work prn for home health agencies or your local hospital to keep it active and gain some bedside experience at the same time. This way, you don't have to work yourself to death while you try to finish school. That's my plan anyway! Here in southwest FL, CNA's are a huge necessity for many LTC/ALF facilities, home health agencies and even private families looking for a caregiver for granny while they're here on vacation. From my view point.. I can say that switching from one place to another or having multiple clients isn't necessarily a bad thing, but a way of gaining as much experience as you can.
