Just noticed from another post that it looks like you're from IL too? I'm in the NW suburbs. I took my CNA class at the Career Training Center of Chicago. I was just wondering what kind of experiences you've had as a CNA since you've become one-- have you worked mostly in hospitals or assisted living? I am starting out in assisted living. I actually had a bit of trouble finding a job as a CNA at first. I think that because my background is corporate with no healthcare experience, that that affected things a bit. I'm happy to have found something now, though. What was your search like? How long have you been a CNA for now? Thanks for responding to my last post!
