Hi all! I've been a lurker just for a little while, and am making a career change, although not really...I have medical experience from the past about 5 years worth until I got "side-tracked" and got into the legal field, now unemployed from legal and very much wanting to re-enter the medical field. So, am getting back on track and taking the first steps to NS.

Anyhoo, I am attending an "interview" for free cna classes this Wednesday sponsored by a local LTC facility. What should I expect? What should I take along with me?

I am both very nervous and excited for this change, or getting back to doing something I enjoyed so much, but I have only worked in private doctors offices, so very nervous about the cna role, but just reading through the messages on here, makes me know that I'm doing the right thing.

Thanks much in advance!

When I became a CNA in 2007 it was also free classes through a LTC facility. When I went through the interview I was asked a lot of questions about my personality and experience in health care. I was given scenarios and how I would handle them. The only thing that I brought with me to the interview was my resume' and of course my driver's license because I didn't know if they would go ahead and select me or not.

I would advise you to just bring anything that might show any experience that you have in health care whether it be a resume' or something else. Be prepared to answer questions that relate to caring for a patient. They want to know what kind of personality you have because patients can get combative and a lot of people can't handle that.

I hope this helps! :)
