I am becoming a CNA in a few months and am wondering what types of jobs I have a chance of getting after I get my certification. This is in California if that matters.
I am getting my CNA certification because I am considering going to school to be an RN someday, and I have read that being a CNA can (somewhat) give you an idea of what being a nurse is like. I don't want to go back to school only to find out that I don't like being an RN!
I am currently working full time as a software engineer and have no plans to quit my job. How easy will it be to get PRN work right after I get my certification? I have been looking at job postings in the area and not all of them require prior experience, but I want to know what the likelihood of securing a PRN position with no experience is. Also, what is the likelihood I would be able to get this job in a hospital vs. long term care facility?
