HI, How was eveyones Day?
I wasn't sure where to post this question. I would like to work as a CNA either part-time or on a per-diem basis while I am finishing up my prerequitsites for an RN program. I was trained as a Certifide Nurses Aid several years ago , but because I let my certifiction lapse and I am not in listed in the state registry where I live I have to do some heavy retesting. I found out today that If I want to work as a nurses aid in a facility that I would have to get re-certifide meaning I have to take both the verbal & skillls portion of the exam and be placed in the state regristry so that I can get a job. I would like to work as a nurses aid again to re-gain the exposure of working in health care setting I think it would be very beneficial for me for when I enter into a nursing program ,after working for a while I would like to train for EKG and phlebotomy so that I can become a Patient Care Technician. What I would like to know is, are there any good text out there that I could either purchase or get from the library to study from? I want to do well on the test so that I can begin working as a nurses aid before I return to college in the fall 2003. Thanks
