I am a new grad CNA, I worked in a Psych Hospital for a couple months now, but started looking into other hospitals because I want more hands on, medical experience as a CNA. Ideally I would love to work at my local large Hospital (Palomar Hospital). I have been applying to every hospital near me, Palomar, Scripps, Sharp, Rady Childrens, UCSD, but so far not a single phone call.
I have been offered a position as a CNA at Kindred Hospital, but I am wondering if this experience will eventually get me where I want to be.
According to what these hospitals (Palomar, Scripps, Sharp, Rady Childrens, UCSD) want is 6-12 months acute care.
So my question is for the experienced CNA's, LVN/LPN's, RN's, and MSN's, do hospitals see LTAC as acute care experience?
