Cheyenne, how about getting experience as a nursing assistant? Becoming a certified nursing assistant (CNA) definitely opened doors for me, and since it sounds like you're thinking about a nursing career, healthcare experience as a nursing assistant could be a great option for you. I took a formal course for 8 weeks and passed a state exam to become a CNA, but I hear that you can sometimes be trained on the job while working.


Good luck!
