Hi Sarah, welcome to allnurses!!
You're centrally located, living in Ahwatukee, so you'll have a pretty wide range of places to work. You could work in Phx or the East Valley, with not a long commute.
Do you want to work as a CNA at a hospital? That would be a good start. Check out the websites of some different hospitals and see if you qualify and then apply. Or call and talk with someone and tell them what kind of job you're looking for. The hospital will pay for your certification if you agree to work for them as a CNA. The valley is in need of great CNAs, so I'm sure you'll be able to find something. Good luck to you!
