I am taking some classes right now towards the nursing program. I am going to try and get most of my sciences out of the way before I enter the nursing program to make the work load easier since I work 7 days a week. I recently started a job in a hospital as an operations associate, at the front desk on my unit. I do transcriptions, files, charts, phones, interact with patients a bit. However the more I am there, the more I want to do more for the patients. Do you think it would be worth it to get PCA or CNA training before my RN? I am not even sure what they require for PCA's. If you have any advice, I'll love to hear!
