Currently I'm a patient care technician at a hospital and want to pick up a part time job, but being a tech/CNA is tiring with full time school. Would it look bad to future employers if my experience was as a unit clerk on the unit rather than a CNA/tech? Does a tech/CNA position look better to future employers? (given I'd also continue with my per diem tech position)
Unit clerk is a great position for a nursing student. It will not look bad to future employers. Do it.
They both look good. It also depends on how you word it on your resume.
Our unit clerks are the CNAs with the most experience and they still take 2-6 patients (the others take 10-12).
