I am doing my pre-reqs for NOVA nursing program and I have no prior hospital experience. I am trying to get a job at hospital setting. However, I find this to be extremely difficult at times like this and also the fact that I have no license/certifications doesn't help either. I thought the best way I could get a job at a hospital is by achieving the CNA license.. (maybe not?). I realized NOVA's CNA program is gone and I am now trying to find an affordable place. Does CNA training program exist anywhere under $1000?! I heard that there are some senior care places that train the workers to become CNA..is that true?
If trying to be a CNA is not a good move, what else can I do to get a clinical job at a hospital??
Thank you so much
