is this a wise choice?

  1. Hi everyone, i'm new to this site but have been browsing it for a couple weeks, I am currently an MA but i have both phlebotomy and ekg experience , I reallllllly want to get into a more hospital setting (MA's are mostly used for clinic work) didn't know that when i got started but oh well i have still learned alot, currently i am just not where i want to be, and it seems that CNA's the bee's knee's hospital side, should i challenge the CNA test? or is there a better way?

    I've never heard of "challenging" something when clinical hours are required.

    i don't believe you can challenge the CNA test. you have to go through the class and do the clinical hours. then take the certification.

    hmmm that makes sense, ok well thank you. i think more research is definantly needed, all in all i dont think it would be a bad chioce either way to get it so i can work in the hospital directly.

    thanks again

    much love
