No Experience Necessary
Question by juxtaposed619: What are the benefits of being a CNA, the advantages, and disadvantages, and how much income?
I have been working in the cell phone field for over 4 years, and am currently going to school to become an RN. I have a couple years left, and I am seeing CNA courses for roughly 500$ and completion in about 3 weeks. There is a high demand for CNAs in the Seattle/Tacoma, area, but I want to know what are the advantages, and disadvantages. I know that it can be hard work (and dirty) as I would be caring for people that are sick and injured. But I have worked with animals, train animals, and have done so for years as I compete in dog sports, so I have patience like no other. I am looking for a more flexible job, and felt that bridging the gap-if any-between RN and becoming a CNA maybe part time will be exceptionally beneficial for my school schedule, and ultimately heath care professional. I want to know people’s honest opinion. I know the pay won’t be the greatest (11-14 an hour depending where I land), but it’s to get out of the bit*hing and nagging part of sales and a not so flexible job that doesn’t reward me as much.
