Mostly nursing homes, but hospitals too.

Yes hospitals.....Check your local paper. Alot of places hire CNA's. Look for patient care tech positions too. Pretty much the same thing in my area.

Some nursing homes also have their own training programs. They train you and you work for them for a specified amount of time. After the time set you can either stay their or apply elswhere.

i have not worked in a hospital for about 5-6 years but we always had cnas...some places are going for total care and i rather like it...because you can have some highly competent caregivers but you can have some that leave pts wet...make up vital signs;;and in general are not trustworthy ... if you do it your self you know that the care has been given

I was wondering because the LVN program that I am trying to get into gives you points for 6 month experience but I only have 4 from a nursing home. Will they count working at home health or for a private person?

i dont know about other states, bot in m state it is illegal for them to require cnas to work for any specified period of time, although they ask for a year (i am not sure why but the DON said so)-- seems like home health would count-- in my state cnas can do home health too--
