Yes, and no. There payroll can come out of your budget, but only a licensed registry eligible respiratory therapist can supervise another RT. RTs must also have a medical director in whatever department they work, and the medical director must be either pulmonary or anesthesia.
I say go for it! CNA its mostly on the job anyways. Where I am from (Alabama) 90% of everyone is not certified. I went to CNA school just to show that I had Hands on experience ( I am a pre med major), and I found it to be pointless. Other than how to take vitals there isnt much to learn.
Hi I am 17, and I also dual enrolled while I was being home schooled. I am now finished with high school. I am now currently in a CNA program, even though I have no intention of working as a CNA my college adviser insures me that it will look very good on my application when I apply to the actual BSN program.
