Hello everyone! I am a pre-nursing student. I just started my freshman year in September. So, since I have 4 years, do you think it would be helpful to work as a CNA? Can someone tell me about what it is that CNAs do and the duties of a CNA? Where do they typically work? I would love as much info on this as possible. Can you do it part-time or are the majority of the CNA jobs full time? How much does the training cost? Would it be valuable to me since I am working on becoming an RN through BSN? I would like to do this part-time while I am in school. I currently work at a retail store and I've been there for 2 years. I know the pay for a CNA isn't that great, but I don't mind. I am making .45 above minimum wage now so I think anything can pretty much be better! I am also not really looking for money, I just want to know if it would help me with my future in nursing. Thank you so much to anyone who attempts to answer any of my 100 questions
Sorry I always ask so many!
