Hello everyone, i made this thread so i could get some extra info about nursing that i couldnt get with my research.
Im currently still in H.S.,im a junior to be specific so i still have one more year of high school before going to nursing school
I was wondering if it would be a good idea to go ahead and get qualified for my cna before actually going to college to get my lpn?I heard it was very useful(and gross :chuckle )...And if so how should i go about doing that? Are there programs that certain healthcare facilities offer to become one? If there are were exactly could i go to get one?
I was also wondering what kind of classes offered in high school might be useful to me thaqt i can take my senior year......
I would really appreciate the input..so thanks alot

Yes, it's a good idea to get your CNA before starting a nursing program.
The best thing for you to do is contact the college's of your choice and find out what requirements are used for their nursing program's. They would be the best one's to answer your particular needs. Also ask them about their CNA classes.
If your high school has some kind of articulation agreement with a particular college, it would be a good idea to take classes that might be offered & credited such as: medical terminology
, nutrition, CNA, biology, chemistry, foreign language etc.
Talk to your high school & college councelor's, Good luck
