  12. Is it worth it to become a CNA on my road to becoming a nurse?
    Here in SoCal, $10 at SNFs and around $14 in hospitals. As for me, I would tell fellow students and in job interviews that I did CNA to gain nursing experience. That's a partial truth. The real...

  14. i want to die i failed my cna exam
    Agreed. Don't beat yourself up, MarkinAZ. You failed a skill that requires no education--aside from 10sec of instruction. Next time, just count for the full minute.

    "A" (Check the connection.) is a good answer (best answer if it's an RN question), but given that this is a CNA question, the best answer is: C. Perform cath care and tell the nurse asap. ...

    Honest question: Why would you want a Master's in anything other than in APN? (esp when you haven't worked as a nurse). With a Master's, you'd be competing with the ADN's, BSN's, but not with the...
