Cna Training And Jobs

  1. Hi there,

    I'm currently taking pre-recs for nursing and am considering taking the CNA course at CSN next semester. After I'm certified, I want to find some part-time weekend CNA work to suppliment my current job in another field.

    Does anyone know: A. If I should take medical terminology class along with the CNA course

    and B. HOw easy is it to get a CNA job just on the weekends?

    and C. HOw soon after certification can you start working?

    Thanks in advance....:spin:

    I did the CNA program at CSN while doing my pre-req's for the RN program. I did take the Medical Terminology course at the same time (just the short course, HIT 117B) and it helped so much, not only with the CNA classes but with my A&P class as well--it has also helped me a lot now that I am in the RN program. Before I got certified by the board as a "C"NA, I was offered a job, I think there is a time frame that you can start working for a place as a Nurses Assistant on the premise that you do get certified by a certain time. I didn't take the job because I got accepted in the RN program. I was also going to look for a "weekend only" job and asked around and had a few good leads, mostly in home health care. Hope this helps and Good luck on your ventures!
