I'm in Michigan, about to enter a CNA program. As a lot of people know, the beast is here. The worst economy in the US is in Michigan (as far as I know). Does the bad economy mean I shouldn't even bother trying to be a CNA?
Here's my problem, though. I'm in school to be an RN and my interest is in gerontology. I want to be a CNA to work while I go to school. It would be a big step in the right direction, I think, as far as gaining experience.
I know a lot of you are veterans in the CNA field and I just want to know if this idea is plausible. I will get into the field with ZERO experience and only my cert to help me get a job.
