Hi all! I recently completed a CNA program in the suburban Chicago area and passed the state exam in December. I've applied for 20+ jobs (no joke) and haven't been able to land an interview yet. :( I am also enrolled as a second-year BSN student . Any tips on landing a CNA job? I'm starting to feel like I'm doing something wrong here! :( Any advice is GREATLY appreciated!

Where have u been looking and what facilities?Have you tried student nurse positions at hospitals or nursing homes(always hiring in Chicago). Indeed.com has numerous CNA positions in Chi and surrounding suburbs. Dont give up,I have definitely been in that situation and it can stress you out. Ask your school if they assist w/ job placement as well. Good Luck 2 You!!
