Thank you. Holy crap there is STEAM coming out of my ears!! Some people have nooooo business in bedside nursing IMO."No day but today"
No worries working at bedside with this one. He will advance to bean counter status and make rules and regulations about a profession he thinks he knows about, because any work below that would be demeaning. I did see some posts about wanting to be an FNP, through an online course. No way would I want this person taking care of any family member with the attitude I see here.You on the other hand, can be my Cna anytime! I wish more had your attitude.We would make a great team.

I went to school in Idaho. One school required a CNA for entry, but the others did not. I obtained my CNA in high school (senior year) and I think working as a CNA prepared me for nursing more than any other thing. The most important thing I learned as a CNA was how to interact with patients and co-workers. They may teach that in nursing school, but I think think it takes most nurses a while to learn the skill, and some never seem to.
Besides, more clinical exposure isn't going to hurt :)
Does the University of Washington School of Nursing Require you to have a CNA for entry?Can you transfer to the University of Washington School of Nursing with just an Associates in Pre Nursing?Thank you and I heavily appreciate all responses. Just my girlfriend is working on getting into the ACT program at her Job Corps Center, and everyone she talks to seems to be brainwashed you need your CNA to transfer.!
^ My point was that by requiring someone to be a CNA during nursing school it would take time away from doing more academic and scholarly things, such as research. I think more emphasis should be placed on turning out more intelligent nurses vs more hard working nurses.
