I am in the same exact shoes as you, but I do not have the years of experience as a CNA so it is even harder. I am supporting a family on a minimum wage job right now. I am not making enough money to get by, cant get a job as a nurse because I am a new grad and dont have 1 yr of exp(how can you get any exp. if you cant get A job?), and am receiving bills to pay back a $30k loan when I cant even pay rent. So I went to school for nothing it seems except to put myself in debt,not get a job, and go right back to making min wage and being poor. Yeehaw!
ps. if there is ANYONE out there willing to give me a chance or know of any work out here, please let me know!!!! : ) thanks!
