Your Nurse Instructor
Back in 2006 I was working in a dead in job that I hated. I had heard about my friend who just completed their training to become a Certified Nursing Assistant and really loved her new job. I decided to check it out and see what the career offers. After looking through the job opportunities I decided to become a CNA, but my ultimate goal was to become a Nurse.
On December 2nd 2006 I signed up at a local CNA Academy. It cost me $350 of my hard-earned dollars from my dead in job. I had hoped I wasn't making the wrong decision but was all in now. I enjoyed the training, I could tell this would be a rewarding job but truly I was lost. How do I sign up for the state exam? Where do I get my background check? After hours of researching and submitting my application twice I was finally for approved to take the state exam in Florida. I had two weeks to cram as much studying and practicing as I could. Nervously in February I took the state exam and passed on my first attempt!
Finally, I was a licensed Certified Nursing Assistant, the start of my long and rewarding career in healthcare. My first Job as a CNA was a skilled nursing facility generally caring for about 10 patients a shift. I loved it, it was a job I could be proud of. With so many options in Healthcare I was able to continue to move up the career ladder. I became a Patient Care Technician and worked in major hospitals in various units like the ICU and CVICU, while I pursued my nursing license.
Subsequently in 2016 I became a nurse and decided to open an affordable comprehensive online CNA program. I created the program to answer all the questions I had when I was starting out and ensure students could become CNA'S quickly and most importantly not break the bank. Our online CNA program is available 100% online, with 24/7 nursing support to get your career started right.
