Hello All,I have a previous degree in Administration and is currently working full time in the Social Service field. I am attending school and will enter the Nursing program in the Fall 2010, during that time i will have to reduce my hours to part-time so i can focus on my studies. My job is the typical 9-5 mon thru friday with weekends off and know flexability..... I have no healthcare experience at all, so i was thinking that i would go get my CNA certification over the summer before school starts and work on that part-time to gain experience and benefit from the flexiable schedule until i am done with school.Now here is the question: I've been reading alot of good reviews for the Manhattan Institute, which i am looking into...8wks/ July 12 is the start date for a total of $1299...Alot of people is telling me that i should not pay all that money for this when alot of CNAs get certified and can't find a jobs and that i should not go towards that due to the enormous stress you encounter doing that job.So should I go for the CNA and has anyone attended Manhattan Institute, how is their job placement or is this just a bad idea???? Please help!!!
