This was sort of brought up in another thread but I wanted to expand the topic a bit...as we all know, the market is tough right now for nurses, esp. new grads. I've been contemplating changing strategy and looking for ANY job in healthcare that I can find-whether it's unit secretary, CNA, or even a janitor at this point!Ideally I would love to be an ER-tech, as my dream job is to be an ER nurse once I'm an RN (I'm an LPN right now). The requirements for that seem a little vague-basically it says you need to be either a CNA or EMT and then you have a couple weeks of paid on the job training. I called a couple places and they told me they really didn't know if it was legal or not! Does anyone know what the kaws are regarding this? Does it vary from state to state?
