Howdy! everyone. I'm a college student in Texas, majoring in Allied Health. I'm getting ready to take a class at the red cross in TX (CPR/First Aid). Then I'm going to take a CNA course over the summer (Kilgore College).
IN the fall I will return to school to keep working on my undergrad degree. I was thinking of transferring to a BSN nursing program, but that would mean I would have to leave my current school. I know I won't get into TAMU's nursing program. Ther are only 25 -30 spots available. I don't have a 6.0 GPA. So again, I will complete the undergrad at TAMU, then apply for a nursing program, perhaps UT in Austin.
In the meantime, I want to get started with learning medical stuff, working with patients, using my body, and helping people. After the CNA training over the summer 2018 and passing the state exam, I would like to work part time as a CNA while in school.
Does anyone know of any intense pre-nursing programs
or CNA program I can sign up for after I complete the CNA training? Maybe I will sign up for volunteer work overseas during the summer. Are there any intense first training programs?
Thank you for your feedback.
