    Should I Keep CNA job?

    I guess I'm just wondering if the CNA experience is valuable enough for me to risk lower grades in nursing school this year. Or if the six months I've done it is good enough exposure.

    This particular hospital does not hire ADN nurses. So they won't be hiring me

    Should I Keep CNA job?

    Hi everyone, I really need some advice. I'm in my second year of a full time ADN program. I'm a single mom to three teenagers (13, 16 and 18), have a house, lawn, pool and dog, and a private massage therapy practice where I see about 10 clients a week, some outcalls where I go to them (including assisted living seniors and those with dementia in nursing homes). Freshman year, I got a job at a hospital as a per diem clinical associate (nurse's aid). I've been there since March and the experience being on a unit has been invaluable. I'm doing one 8 hour shift a week. The pay is so low. I'm wondering if it's worth it to continue considering it takes time away from studies, the kids and the massage practice (i.e., my bread and butter source of income.) The experience was valuable but do I need to keep doing it? I've had six months to learn and work on the floor. I'd appreciate any and all advice! Thanks! Kris

    Help! Choosing a clinical job

    Hi everyone! I am just finishing up my first semester of an ADN program. I have not worked in a clinical setting before outside of a chiropractor's office as a massage therapist. I have been adviced by my facilitator that I should get a health care position asap. So I have started looking as my 100 clinical hours qualify me to do CNA/clinical associate level work. Question: I applied at a local hospital for a clinical associate position. The one they are offering me is on a floor with cancer patients, end of life care, oncology, detox/overdose and geriatrics. An RN friend has told me she thinks this will be an awful first experience for me and that I should hold out for a med/surg assignment or look at working in long term care or assisted living. The HR person just left a message and I need to get back to her. Help! Thoughts? Kris
