Working as a NA while a RN student?

  1. Not sure if this should be in the Canadian forum, or the student forum or this one! So please bear with me

    I was just wondering whether it is possible in Canada for first year nursing students to get a job as a Nursing Assistant. I'm looking for a job for the coming summer so I can pay for my second year of BScN.

    Would I be able to get a job in a hospital? or would I be only really considered in continuing care centers?

    Since I haven't started clinicals yet this year, all I know is hearsay. From what I've heard we learn pericare, bathing, basic vitals etc. Is that adequate for a NA job?
