    Hopefully taking CNA classes soon, tips/tricks?

    I wanted to thank everyone for their input, I really appreciate it! I start classes on the 15th, so it's just a waiting game now. I'll be studying and reading your comments in the meantime. Again, thank you all so much!

    I've been talking to a former CNA concerning the contract, but you really broke it down for me so I really understand what I could be losing. I really appreciate that! I'll definitely read all the fine print before making any decisions. I went ahead and looked up the nursing home on glassdoor with no reviews, but then checked Indeed, they seem to be alright overall (4.2/5 stars but only 6 reviews) Thank you so much! Update: I received a call today from the nursing home, they got my background check. Now I'm just waiting for the teacher to call me, fingers crossed for this week!

    Note taken. I try my best to be friendly and non confrontational, it's just the kind of person I am. I know other people aren't as easy to get along with but I've made it work in the past. I didn't think about the nursing school part, I'll try my best to only talk about it if they ask.

    I didn't think about that, definitely sounds like a good idea. I was a server prior to COVID-19, so I'll probably keep wearing my super comfy non-slip shoes, those have gotten me through a few 16 hour shifts.

    This thread is mostly so I can talk to someone about this because I've annoyed my entire family at this point. I applied for CNA classes at a nursing home about an hour away from where I live. I'm in a state where I could just challenge the test by myself but felt I would never be prepared enough so I sought out other, less expensive options. I found a place that offers classes, paid for, plus a bonus, and a job offer with a sign-on bonus after passing the class. I went for an interview, they sent in my background check, now I'm just waiting to hear back from them (fingers crossed for Tuesday)! I'm super duper excited to start working in the healthcare field, hopefully this will open up the ability to go to nursing school! So, any tips, tricks, general advice for a new CNA?
