1. I have been a CNA in Northan Calif for 10 years and awaiting to test for my LVN/LPN boards, I will say that being in the medical field has opened a lot of doors as well. My first year I spent working in SNF/ Assisted Living and the went to a registry. With the registry I have worked all sections of a hospital but most enjoy the OR and ER sections fo any hospital. I am retired flightline jet mechanic (22years) and have started this second career in the medical field. Working ER or OR is like the flightline you have to know your stuff and be able to think on your feet.
