Please advise......


My first semester of fundamentals is almost over, I've been told that some hospitals will allow you to work as a PCA after completion of the first semester of nursing school.

Has anyone on the board gain employment after first semester of nursing school?

Specializes in IMCU. Has 10 years experience.

There are some states that permit student nurses to sit for the CNA certification. You should check with whoever regulates your CNA registry. Also, there are some states that permit CNAs who are student nurses, having passed pharmacology, to be medication aides.

It is up to your state.

Thanks Dolcevita, I live in NYC hopefully I will fing so info on google.
