CNA OR PCT questionss


Hello, I'm very new to this site so please bare with me. All replies are appreciated, I'm just trying to get used to this website (online on a pda). Anyway, I am currently a pre nurse student who is completing the pre reqs for the rn program at scc. I plan on taking the c n a course in the spring of 2010 while I wait to apply in april for the rn program that fall. I know I can work full time all summer once I have my certificate but once I start the day track..... I won't be able to. Is anyone aware of any part time evening shiftss as a nursing assistnat or a patient care tech? Because I really want to gain as much clinical experience as possible while I wait

We don't know where you are, so we can't tell you about any specific openings for the job you want, but people DO hire part time evening CNAs or techs all the time!

Thank you whispera for the response. I live in the orlando area of florida, I thought I had included that. But yeah, I really hope what you said holds true because its the only way I can work. And if not id have to apply for the evening/weekend track which begins only in spring terms, so id have to wait a whole year instead one summer semester :(

I worked full time as a CNA while I was in nursing school. I don't recommend it, but it is doable.

CNA/PCT's work a wide variety of shifts, including daylight, evening, and nights. You could work evenings, nights, or weekends, if you wanted to pick up some experience as well as money while you are in nursing school.
