I think I am going to have to get a part-time job. I could get a job at a call center where they would let me study between calls or should I get a CNA type of job for the experience? What do you guys think?
I have a part-time job in a supermarket and I enjoy the fact that i don't really have to think too hard at work when i have just had a long, hard day at uni, but then again I have friends who do PCA ( CNA in the US ) type jobs and they rock in clinicals with basic patient care. Good luck

Ughh I hated working in call centers. Are you sure you would be able to study between calls? Most of the time you dont have time to has been my experience with them and what time you do have you cant really concentrate on school work.
I would do the CNA for experience I think, but that is just me. You have to do what you think is best. And if one doesn't work out you can just do the other. Nothing lost really.

I would go for a CNA job. I never did it, and at times I regretted it!
I'd go for the CNA job.. You will learn much more than taking vitals and using bed pans... Just observing the nurses I learned so much

I just took a job as a Nurse Tech (pretty name for CNA) and the experience is great! All of the nurses know that I am entering the program in the Fall so they grab me to watch all of the procedures they do and explain everything whenever they get a chance. It's awesome. I would highly recommend it!
