1. Should pre-nursing students become STNA/CNA's before applying to RN/BSN-RN program?
Yes, it is vital for nursing students to have the skill set and preparation that a CNA/STNA job sets up for you.
No, becoming a STNA/CNA may provide real-life experience prior to becoming a RN but it is a waste of money, time and energy unless you're going into the geriatric field.
