    CNA training during COVID

    Keep in mind that a lot of nursing programs require that you have your CNA certification. I would double check with the program to see if they require it. My nursing program did not allow us to even submit an application without our certification.

    Wake Tech Fall 2020

    I was planning on going through care one. I was curious because I did look into wake techs and it was a pre-req for nurse aide. I’m just trying to time everything right so I don’t miss any deadlines. So if I sign up for care ones nurse aide 1 program...

    Hey guys. Quick question. Is my CPR certification not included in the Nurse Aide 1 program? Or do I need to get a CPR certification elsewhere before my Nurse Aide 1?
