i just started nursing school a few months ago and i am almost done with my 1st semester. since the aa program i am attending offers classes during the long semesters (spring and fall) only i have the summer break all for myself. so i was hoping to start working in the medical field at least part time, however i need some advice on how to break in. what opportunities are there for students like me? where should i start looking?
was contemplating to take the cna exam, however i never took real cna classes ... was thinking 1st semester nursing students are learning the basics just as cna's do in their 6 week course,and more. but where would i go to take the exam? can i sit at the exam even though i don't have a cna diploma?
is there any another way to start working in a hospital? i am really looking forward to gain more experience, become a more knowledgeable nursing student and a caring nurse in the future.
thank you for your guidance!
