No one can guarantee anyone a job these days but CNA is a field where there is a lot of need in GA However lots of people do go into it too which cuts down the job openings. If the place you are taking CNA training offers job placement you’ll be better of to get some experience before moving if your move schedule allows that. For an private duty agency you will definitely need experience to get a good place tho I have a friend who is doing home health aid stuff fresh from training but not at CNA level. Jobs that are open now may not be open in May but there are a number. Alpha Health care may be one good place to try (they do in home work and work closely with the area agency on aging) A family member was at Roswell Nursing Center ad Rehab last summer and I was really impresses at the way the staff worked together and the fact that the CNA’s enjoyed their jobs pretty much all of them. That was a lot different from a lot of other nursing homes around here. Roswell is “next door” to Sandy Springs. A good place to look for jobs would be http://sandysprings-neighbor.com/ Right now www.del tahomecare.com is advertizing
GA CNA requirements and how to get recognition in GA for your FL CNA license once you get one are available at http://www.asisvcs.com/publications/pdf/071115.pdf If you are licensed in FL you would be eligible in GA
