May have been asked before, I haven't looked. But being a CNA for 6 years blows my mind. As in, I have to wonder if you've thought of being a Nurse or a higher paid medical worker during that time? Seems CNA get paid marbles compared to the enormous amount of back-breaking work they do. I couldn't imagine being one for more than 2 years (the time it would take for me to finish nursing school).

Oh I see, hey that's your route who's us to knock it! I'm not a CNA yet, but I'm looking into classes now. My plan is to do some volunteering at a hospital I want to work at while I take my CNA classes, so when I complete the CNA test I'll have a small foot in the door (hopefully). Then once I'm a CNA at a hospital, I'll take the nursing prereqs, then head to the ABSN school (hopefully the hosp has tuition reimbursement). Basically, I want to get a CNA job at the hospital I want to be a nurse at. But in NY there's so many hospitals it's driving me nuts how to narrow down :-/ I'm 27 and feel like I'm starting too late so I'm flustered trying to get my life in order right now. I hope to be a nurse by the time I'm 30-31, or at least close to graduating. Just need to get a job at the hospital and I can relax a bit.
