Practicality of a summer CNA job?

I'm currently a full-time college student (originally nursing but switched second semester to elementary education) with a CNA certification I obtained last year. It's not possible for me to work during the school year, so I need to work this summer in order to keep my certification. (it'll be more than 2 years next summer, IN law says you have to work at least 8hrs in 2 years) Is it practical/would an employee hire me to only work ~3 months? I'd also prefer to work part time and possibly get another job.

I don’t know if you should tell them you only want to work 3 months or not. You could try applying for a PRN CNA job. You can work as needed during the summer, and can slack up during the school year. Most jobs have requirements for keeping PRN. For example, my job you have to work one 8 hour shift per 6 week schedule. Just depends on the job.

Hi there,

I know a couple of classmates who worked fulltime as a CNA during the summer. Then, once school started for them, they switched to working part-time or on-call!
