cna while in training course

  1. Hi I will like to know if I can still apply for a job while I'm currently enrolled in the can training program with dawn. I am looking for a better job and I was wondering is that possible.

    As a current PCT, I know that hospitals will not even look at your resume unless you have already passed the state cert. However, many LTC facilities will hire you if you will pass your states within 3 months.

    Hope this helps

    I worked as a PCT in ED for years and wasn't a CNA, but I was an EMT and had a separate phlebotomy certificate so I think you have to have completed some sort of certification/licensing. It definitely seems to vary by location though.

    So I won't have a chance of getting in like a nursing home without having my certification first

    Again, it varies by location, but the majority of the time LTC WILL hire you if you are still in the course. The hospitals will only entertain applicants who already have their certs.
