  4. Hard Time Finding a Job (PCT/CNA)
    You won't necessarily have to put a ton of miles on your car. I think it depends on the assignment. A lot of people I know in home health care have an assigned client that they work with regularly....

    So far I have a 3.6 GPA. I'm finishing up my last pre-req right now and unless something horrible happens I'll have an A in that so I think that would bring my GPA up to a 3.67. I'm nervous about...

  18. Do some schools require only certain parts of the TEAS?
    Thanks! I graduated HS 15 years ago, so I can see how more recent grads would remember more of it. Although I'm not sure it would do me any good to have graduated more recently since my HS did not...
