  6. $33, 000 for Medical Assistant program
    No they don't. MA's don't wipe people's hineys and do all the grunge work that a CNA does. As for the for profit schools most places will not even look at a resume that lists one as your...

  13. Deathbed visions **UPDATED**

    Every time they try to start an IV on top of my hand they hit a valve. The last surgery I had the nurse tried 3 times before she managed to get it in. I think she was more flustered than I was and...

  20. No Visitors
    You're welcome. I've been in the hospital too and judging from what I saw nurses have a lot to do-being someone's social director is not one of them. You guys barely have enough time to do what you...

  24. No work experience? CNA?
    Most places don't accept taking care of a family member as experience, they want 6 months to a year of PAID experience. At least that's what it said on several applications and ads that I've seen.
