My hospital doesn't have apprentice positions. I'm 38 and have been a CNA for ~3years. I'm looking at EKG (Tele) tech or phlebotomy. I want to do something different because I'm tired of being pigeonholed into rehab or similar units. I'm 6'2" 280lb. I'd like to save my back and have something in the tank when I graduate a program. I tried unit secretary but I always get pulled to the for for larger or combative patients. My hospital has EKG techs and lab techs (phlebotomists).
