Hi, I am keen to start a career in a hospital setting.
A few points:
- I am English but living in the USA thus I have no GED
- I am (or will be ) a *cough* Mature Student
- I have just received my work permit but am not employed at the moment, but I need to change that sooner rather then later.
The main areas I am interested in are:
Possibly Radiology, Surgical or Ultrasound Tech
Now I cannot seem to find any Hospitals that train or courses in my area, they only courses offered (at great cost) are Medical assistant.
Now I was doing some more research this morning and my local community collage offers a Certified Nurse Assistant course (12 weeks) for a reasonable price.
Would taking this course get me on the road I want to be or should I go for the more expensive and longer medical assistant course offered by a private school?
Or would I be better off trying to get any job in a hospital eg: linen aide, house keeper etc and try to get on the job training by the hospital?
Any pointers would be very welcome.
Thanks in advance. :spin:
