Hi guys, I have been looking for an answer to whether it would be advisable for me to take a CNA course and get certified for that before I start my program (ADN) in Summer 09. I found a forum that mentioned something called a TopCap program. This is where during your program you get certified as a CNA then an LPN then RN. I am thinking since I haven't heard of this my school Valencia Community College probably doesn't workk this way. So does anyone know whether Valencia in Orlando does that or not? School is out of session and it's Friday night so it would be a couple days before I could get an answer and I thought some of you guys and gals might know the answer, someone usually does here, right?My other question is IF that isnt in my program do ya'll think it would help at all to get certified but possibly not work. I am not really needing to work and I have a full load but I'd like to at least have an advantage, since I do not have any clinical background. That leads me to wonder, how do so many of us just know without a doubt that Nursing is where we should be? Hmmm I guess I do believe in callings!Next would it be wise to do one of those weekend or online Cna programs. I found some out of Tampa, that are about 500 bucks....but I want the most education for my money! Any thoughts are greatly appreciated.
