    Helpful and Interesting Reads

    I really like the "unded and unwed" series by Mary Janice Davidson, they were a lot of fun!!:) "Betsy Taylor turns 30, gets laid off, is killed by an SUV and wakes up dead all in the same week. The vampire community is convinced she's their prophesied Queen. But she's not having any of it--she's got shoes to buy! And now the undead world is being turned upside-down by a Bela Lugosi throwback and her subjects expect her to take care of it! Why didn't she read the handbook? But her would-be consort, Eric Sinclair, is (annoyingly) ever-present. If only he wasn't so tall, dark, gorgeous...and undead". http://maryjanicedavidson.net/the-undead-series-betsy/

    pay range for CNAs at UNC

    I have a friend that works there as a CNA and she makes around 11.00/hr PRN with no benefits. Not sure about someone full-time though.

    experience in NC?

    i don't have personal experience but you may want to check out hospitals that have the magnet recognition. these hospitals are supposed to have the highest nurse satisfaction, and represent the top 2% of elite nurses in the us. here is the search page of hospitals which have this, just enter in nc. http://www.nursecredentialing.org/magnetorg/searchmagnet.cfm maybe with the personal opinion of someone on here along with the magnet recognition, you could find the perfect place to work:)

    Is there a NA I to NA II Bridge Program in North Carolina?

    no, you don't have to be admitted into a nursing program to get your CNA II, you just have to have your CNA I of course. Central Carolina Community College has a CNA II program through their continuing education department that is a "hybrid". That means that the majority of the course is offered online and you may only have to go to the campus once or twice during the course. Hope this helps!

    CNA continuing education units?

    Hi everyone, I have my first CNA interview in the morning:) at an assisted living facility and the hiring manager stated that if I wanted the weekend shift that I would have to go to a meeting/class on Tuesdays for my CEU's. Correct me if I am wrong, but since I just received my Certification a couple of weeks ago, do I need to be taking the continuing ed already? Someone please help me to understand all of this so I know what is going on tomorrow at the interview:confused:. I don't remember our instructor ever saying anything about this, we were just told that we had to work a min. of 8 hours I believe in 2 years' time to keep our certification current. Also, how many CEU's do you need each year etc,. Thanks in advance guys,!!:)

    Anyone else waiting..TEAS/NET/HOBET results??

    FINALLY!! got my results today. I think I did pretty well:), and I made above the cutoff!! Now I just have to wait and see if I get accepted...oh well...another 2 weeks of worry:lol2:
  8. I am and it's driving me crazy!! I ran out of time on the last few questions on the reading part and I am so scared that I won't make the cutoff. Anyone else in the same boat, worrying until they get their results?
  9. I know it is sooo aggravating deciding on schools. I have several within about and hour or so drive but with all wanting different things, I just chose to stick with 2. One is closer and more "country" which I like and I am actually attending now. The other is about a 15 min drive furthur but it has a twice a year entrace whereas the school I am attending now only has a once a year entrance. 2 is all I can manage lol:bugeyes:. So I am crossing my fingers hoping that I get into the school I am attending now for this fall or the other school spring 2011. Both also have different entrance exams which drives me crazy too. I just tried to pick the 2 schools that I know that I could finsh the pre-reqs up the fastest and that also gave me the most points to get in!

    A&P 2 Spring 2010

    I ended up with a B but I am happy with that. I took chem, soc, and mat with A & P I and I also did a semester long CNA class. All inall I was going to class 4 nights a week, 5 days a week and I have 3 children:bugeyes:. I did manage to finish out the smester with A's and B's for all classes and that was good enough for me for this semester. Next semester I can relax a little because no night classes:nuke:I was just pushing it to meet the deadline to apply and I needed that chem and mat class.

    CNA & A&P

    I keep wondering the same thing lol! I have to cram everything in this semester in order to have any chance getting in next fall, so I am taking the CNA course which is probably the longest in the country lol ( almost a full semester 4 days a week:bluecry1:), A&P I, Algebra, Chemistry & an online sociology. I don't work right now but I do have 3 children. I have always taken a full course load and I have a pretty good GPA (A's & B's), but this semester makes me a little nervous:( Good Luck, I'm sure you will do fine with just the two!!:redbeathe

    CNA 2 with Phlebotomy tech or Pharmacy tech?

    I'm just guessing but I would think that the phlebotomy would help more. Then again I could be totally wrong lol. I wanted to take the phlebotomy myself after I finish my CNA course in hopes of getting on at a hospital. I also would like to take a couple of more certification courses because I know that hospital jobs are hard to get for CNA's especially without experience or extra qualifications.

    I really need help with this question

    I know what you mean lol! The school I am currently attending and trying to get in fall 2010 takes the HOBET and the other backup school that I will apply for spring 20011 takes the TEAS. I wish they all just had a universal test lol, it would make it a lot easier. We take our HOBET in march...I hope I get in next fall!! Good Luck!!:redbeathe:heartbeat:redbeathe:heartbeat
