I'm starting nursing school this fall! Yay!
Ok, so I'd really like to get into a hospital as a pca. I have a friend who works at the local one and she said even though I'm beginning nursing school this fall, it would still be beneficial to get my cna certification due to how hr looks at the applications. She gave my name to the floor manager but HR looks at applications that have a CNA license number..
I thought about just waiting till I get through my fundamentals and taking the test but my classes are set up weird. I'm taking foundations of professional nursing and health and assessments nursing classes. So I won't any clinicals done the first semester.
Do you think it'll be too much on my plate to take these two courses along with anthropology and cna class? The class is from 10/1-10/18 monday,tuesday,wednesday,thursday at 4-9:30 pm. Is this too much with just starting nursing school?
