I've had a million jobs all these years and now I just turned 49 and I'm unemployed again. I'm thinking about taking the two week immersion course to prepare to be a certified nursing assistant. I used to work in medical office (I worked in a variety of medical offices for about five years)but I bounced around from office to office and then I left the field. I've been working in day care centers for the last five years and now I"m out of work again. Would night shift CNA work be a steady field where I can finally stay in one place for more than one or two years? Any advice from those of you in the nursing field?
How do you get "experience" for this type of job? Does working in child care count at all? Perhaps being a hospice volunteer will help? If you have any ideas I do hope you will share. Thank you!
I'm just graduating highschool and I want a job this summer that can save me as much money as possible for college. Am I the kind of person who is eligible for a Certified Nursing Assistant? Or is there a degree and education and things already required?
What should I do now that I have completed my Basic Certified Nursing Assistant Program? I'd like to become an RN in the future but would like work now and go to school in the process? What steps can i take?
I am moving to Boise Idaho next month and have been a CNA for 5 years now. I am a single mom and am in need of a Certified Nursing Assistant job that will actually pay me enough until I can get into school up there. Anyone have any idea? It would be greatly appreciated.
I was thinking of taking classes to become a Certified Nursing Assistant and then take classes to bump up in the Nurse profession. I find I am really excellent with children. They love me. :) I like adults too and listening to their stories, but I could see myself more with kids. But, it doesn't matter I guess? It's either this I am considering or social work.
If anyone out there is a nurse or a CNR, could you give me some tips and help me out? Do you like your job? I really loooove to help people, and it's not all about the money for me. But, it would be nice to be able to make money and move out to my own place someday. That's all I want=my own place and happiness. And, I think making other people comfortable and smiling make me the most happy.
I rather do more of vital signs and taking peoples height and weight rather then working with the elderly but I also know being a Certified Nursing Assistant; you can more employment options. Is there a test or something I can take or any suggestions? Thanks.
I have an over-the-phone interview on Monday for a nursing assistant job at a hospital and I want to know what it is like before jumping into this. I've worked in nursing homes before but not in a hospital.
By the way, I already know what nursing assistants do as a job (seeing how I work in a nursing home as a nursing assistant), I just want to know if anyone here is a nursing assistant at one and if so do you like it? Or even if you know someone who has that job at a hospital and if they like it that would be great.
I am going for interview in a couple days for a certified nursing assistant job.How should I answer this question if I get it?
I am trying to look for a good paying job in Wisconsin near the Waukesha County area and I would like to know what the starting hourly wages for certified nursing assistants is. I found a bunch of nursing homes hourly wages, but I cannot find out what the hospital pays their CNAs. Thanks so much!
I wan't to get as many certifications I can get. There are jobs out there that might seem simple and you say to yourself "Hey I can do that" but they requre you to get certified in whatever it is. A good example : CNA (certified nurse assistant) the job seems easy enough but you have to be certified. can someone think of any real good ones.
I currently work as a certified nursing assistant. It's an EXCELLENT job for those who aren't like me and can stand to change old people's diapers, help them walk, feed them, and all the other things I need to do. I realize that having my job is more than what I described, however, I want to do something else until I graduate from the medical transcription program. And no, I'm not going to be a nurse, I'll have to go to more school before I can even consider it and plus I won't like that any more than my current job. All I want is a part time job that can make ends meet.
I recently started a new job as a Certified Nursing Assistant. I miss my bus almost every night because I'm never finished when my shift ends. i don't want to lose my certification or my job and i definitely don't want to jeopordize anyone's health by doing a piss poor job.
Here's the scoop. I'm starting my classes for my Certified Nursing Assistant Certification soon. I'm looking to eventually change careers from IT into Nursing full time. I need to get a job after I complete my classes and I'm doing some volunteer work at the hospital in the meantime. I hope that once I'm employed at the hospital I can then get tuition assistance from them to go to nursing school.
I just recently received my certification for nursing assistant about a few months ago, which officially makes my a certified nurse assistant. I've been inquiring about jobs in that field and so far no one will hire me without at least one year of experience. I'm getting frustrated and I really need some advice.
I have just graduated from a CNA(Certified Nursing Assistant) program and am naturally putting together a resume so I can get a job as a CNA. So what do I put for work history when I've never worked as a CNA? Do I just put down jobs I've had that require similar skills like working at a daycare? Or would it be good to put down other jobs like cashier clerk too?
What jobs can get me started on being an engineer?
I'm also willing to take short college courses, if any.
For example, if you wanted to be a doctor when you grew up and you were 16, you could train to be a certified nursing assistant and get a job as a CNA.
Are there any types of jobs like that for a 16 year old future engineer?
I am currently a nursing student, but I am applying for a job as a CNA - Certified Nursing Assistant - and I would like to sound and look professional. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance!!!
Im considering becoming a certified nursing assistant (CNA) and I live in IL. Can anyone tell me what the salary is like? I've heard it's at minimum wage or very close to minimum wage, is that true?
I dont want to invest all of my savings getting certified in this job if it doesnt pay at least $10 per hour.
I am currently a Junior in high school and have an overall 3.7 GPA
I am also a Certified Nursing Assistant which was a job that required me to go to a community college while I was going to high school. I play football and I'm in track. If anyone has any recommendations on other things I can do please provide me with this info and about what score on the ACT would be reasonably good enough for the college to recognize me.
I am taking the Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) course at my local tech school and I was wondering if anybody is a CNA? I was wanting to know what kind of job responsibilites you would have, what they get paid on average and if a hospital you would work for would pay for tuition to get an Associates in Nursing (RN). I know this is an unusual question, but I thought I would ask.
