Help? CNA and RN program.

  1. Hello everyone! I'm new in this forum and I need everyone's advice and input. I'm currently in a RN program and have only 3 months of experience as a CNA in a nursing home. Because I'm not working in a hospital, what are my chances of being hired by a hospital after graduation? And, does anyone know any hospitals/facilities in MN that provides a good learning experiences for CNA if applied and accepted into? I've not lived in MN long enough to know much about which hospital or facility is good or not.

    Where in MN are you located, or where would you like to be located?

    I would google search hospitals in MN. Sometimes there are reviews of the hospitals as well. Have you thought about applying to a hospital as a CNA? I work on a med-surg floor as a nurse tech and I see a ton of what the Nurses do, which helps in nursing school.
