    Can I be a Nurse? Fear of blood.

    Any suggestions at all?
  2. A nursing job has everything I could ask for: Being able to help people, think critically, being on your feet, and the pay doesn't seem too bad either. But there's one thing stopping me. Blood and gore make me woozy. I get light-headed whenever I look in an anatomy book or someone gives a presentation on how the heart works. And it will usually make me pass out and start sweating, it's really bad. I've tried getting over it; watching Plastic Surgery shows and the like but the result is the same. I'm a pretty driven person, if someone tells me no I take it as a challenge. But I don't even know how I'd sit through an anatomy lecture without passing out. Is there something else I can try that will help me with this? I really want to be a nurse but I don't see how I can.
  3. I really want to get my feet wet in the medical field before I commit to a nursing career. The problem is that there are no CNA classes offered near me (that work around my school schedule) and I don't know what to do. I could take a phlebotomist class which would work with my scheduling but I heard its hard to get a job. I've looked at volunteering at a hospital but at my age (16) I'd just be working the gift shop. I feel I'm in a bit of a pickle right now. Any advice for me? I appreciate it.

    Can't find CNA Training in Chico

    Well I ended up calling a ton of places, and they all said the same thing. The only place offering CNA classes is in another town, 45 minutes away. So I guess I'm out of luck. Since CNA is out of the question, I'm going to start looking for other jobs in the medical field that don't require much training, to get my feet wet. If you have any suggestions, other than CNA obviously, than let me know! Thanks for all the help guys.

    I looked online and the Red Cross isn't offering any classes near me. I will have to call a few places to see if they know where they're being offered. Will report back tomorrow with what I uncover, wish me luck!

    Yes I have, but they discontinued their program awhile ago. Thanks for the link! It shows one facility in my area, but when I went to their website it says they wern't offering the class.

    Can't find CNA Training in Chico

    I've been looking for ages but I can't find anyone offering CNA training in my area. It's depressing calling all of these places asking if they offer them and being shot down. I did manage to find one, but they didn't offer night classes which I need so I can still go to school. Any tips on how to find where they're being held? I've tried googling it but I just came up with dead ends. I'm thinking about calling my hospital and asking if they know a place that's offering such training. Thanks for any help. Also first post here!
