  9. 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?
  10. 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. Th...

    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 co...
