Hmm...that could be an option huh? Anyone recommend that?

My sis-in-law was a CNA while in nursing school and she said they counted her clinical hours as experience and that since it was a 1 on 1 patient, she could study for hours in the pt. room!

How could I become a CNA? It would be a great way to get some experience and earn some $$....

Any opinions??

I don't know how it works where you live, but here you can apply for CNA jobs as log as you finished one semester of clinicals. If I decide to do it I will apply early in my first semester because it takes awhile for HR around here to get to apps, so I figure by the time they look at mine I'll be ready to go. I think it would be a good way to earn some money and experience as well. I am also going to look inot the paid internships offered through my school because I've heard you get to do more "nursing" stuff. Good luck.
