    Is It Too Demeaning to be a CNA?

    I see, will definitely take that to account. Appreciate the advice as well! Very helpful community.

    Appreciate the advice! I was leaning towards the CNA path initially, but was then told to get training as an EMT by other nurses, so got confused.

    No I am not. I want to make a career change into nursing.

    Is It Too Demeaning to be a CNA?

    Hi Nurse Beth, I wanted to ask if you could give me tips on how to jump start my nursing career and gain that experience. Like many others, I am also making a career switch, but not too much of a jump. I have patient experience but through a behavioral health perspective doing research and diagnostics at a Level 1 Trauma Center. I have a bachelors in two other degrees, but not a BSN. My aim is to go into psychiatric nursing. Some people have been giving me a mix of advice on starting this career. I have applied to ME-MSN and MEPN programs but have been wait listed every time. I was thinking of gaining more nursing exposure through getting a CNA or EMT certification. In your opinion, which would be the most cost effective and competitive choice to make? I was hoping to be in a program by now to better support my kids, but I think I have been doing things wrong.

    Second degree / career change

    Hi everyone, Just reading the responses, I wanted to ask if anyone can give me tips on how to jump start my nursing career and gain that experience. I am also making a career switch, but not too much of a jump. I have patient experience but through a behavioral health perspective doing research and diagnostics at a Level 1 Trauma Center. I have a bachelors in two other degrees, but not a BSN. Some people have been giving me a mix of advice on starting this career. I have applied to ME-MSN and MEPN programs but have been wait listed every time. I was thinking of gaining more "nursing" exposure through getting a CNA or EMT certification. In your opinions, which would be the most cost effective and competitive choice to make? I was hoping to be in a program by now to better support my kids, but I think I have been doing things wrong.

    Yeah, it is a vague area. I just found out last week that they don't request or let you send the final grades for a course in process when they view your application. They only see that course after they accept you and ask for the official transcript. Regardless, thanks for the info! Definitely the best of luck as well!

    Oh thank you! They haven't replied to my emails so I got worried. Just curious from your past experience applying, but if saying I am in the process of finishing one of core prerequisites, would my application be wait listed at the best?

    Hi, Applied to the OC one as well! Does anyone know if they will accept a combined Human Anatomy/Physiology Part 1 with lab and the part 2 with lab? I heard some schools will not accept it combined and I forgot to check with their department before submission.
