i was accepted into a lpn program that will start next month. :dance:currently, i am not working and have been utilizing my time by learning prefixes, suffixes and volunteering several days a week. i am very eager to get into the medical field, and would like to start as a caregiver. the caregiver program is only a week and a half long, so i have ample enough time to persue that prior to starting nursing school. i figured becoming a caregiver will give me some patient care experience. will it be putting to much pressure on myself unneccessarily to pursue caregiving partime while in nursing school? and if not, which is better home health or a facility?
also, i know after the 1st semester, i will be eligible to sit for the cna exam. should i hold off until then?
thank you all of you input, it is greatly appreciated.
