Quote from Firas5
I'm a CNA and I've been working at a nursing home for about 8 months. I left the job with very little/no notice.
There is a huge difference between little notice and no notice given. Context seems key here. Try applying at a hospital for CNA positions. They have different needs than a LTC facility, and more need for night-shift CNAs.
Remember these for the next position to which you apply:
1. do NOT bad-mouth your previous employer or facility
2. Always list the company signing your checks as your employer. Do not list the facility. Only list the agency.
3. Be honest but professional about the reason you left on such short notice or without notice.
If you consider nursing school, go for it. No one is going to chastise you for this after you have received your RN/BSN.
