Should I start out as a CNA and work my way up the career ladder? Or just jump into nursing? | Yahoo Answers
I am a CNA and I am going to school for my RN. I'll tell you from my personal experience that in being a CNA you only do the dirty work pretty much. You may not be appreciated depending where you work (but only because a lot of old or immigrant low class people work as CNA's and just stop there) BUT in doing this, you will gain A LOT of respect. And the pay is not too horrible. Also, it will look good on a resume that you have healthcare experience
