  5. Did you need a stethoscope when taking the class?

    Ok, I realize I'm not going to need one for class, but is this something I'm going to need if I get a job in a hospital? I'm not really sure what CNA's learn but I thought one of them was checking Blood pressure. And if I don't learn it in my CNA c...
  6. Will I learn this in CNA class?

  9. CNA school in Southern California

  10. I'm so undecided. I signed up at my college for the Radiology program. After talking to several of my friends that are nurses, I decided against it. They convinced me that there are not any jobs for radologist. I then decided maybe I would try t...
  11. What is the cost of Nursing school?

    I have several colleges in my area to pick from including 1 university that has a great nursing program. I went to check to see if I could get any help with the cost. I was turned down, even though I was laid off from my job last year, we still mad...

  14. A good "congratulatory" gift for a nurse friend?

    This was just discussed on another message board I visit. One gift suggested was to get her a "girls day out". Pick her up take her shopping, go to lunch and go get a pedicure or massage. They said she would be stressed, on her feet a lot and this wo...
  15. How can you tell if nursing is a good fit for you?

    I think you could get a job of CNA just about anywhere you wanted. I know a few that work in nursing homes and I have a friend that started working in a hospital as soon as she finished the course. They told me the places around here are begging fo...
