    It will be very difficult to find a job in the medical field with just your HS diploma and cpr/aed certification. If you are looking for a short training program that can get you a job at a hospital or doctor's office... I suggest looking for CNA training or medical assistant. There is also the registration desk at hospitals.

    What are your long term goals ??

    Hi there, sometimes it depends where you live. I would check at local hospitals for CNA and PCT job openings. Usually they'll give you consideration if you've got six months bedside experience or nursing fundamentals. It's a good idea to go and take the CNA exam. I got hired at a hospital with zero experience BUT I had my CNA license. If you want to work as an RN in a hospital, this is route I would take. You get awesome RN experience! good luck

    Some states allow you to test for the CNA exam after you have finisged fundamentals. You are going to have to do a little research in yoru state. Ask you school advisors forthe nursing program I'll be they will know.
