1. Visit Assessment.com and take their personality assessment test.
It asks you questions about your likes and dislikes, strengths and weaknesses, personality type( analytical, outgoing, caring, nurturing, etc. ) and courses in school. After answering 71 questions, you are provided with a personalized list of ten careers ideal for you based on your answers! I am a former CTE teacher and all of my students took this test. Many pursued careers that were suggested by this site.
I think the test may cost $69; worth every penny!!!
2. Visit the OOH website of the Department of Labor. OOH stands for the Occupational Outlook Handbook. Type in CNA on the Search line and it will give you extensive information about a CNA career such as entry requirements, where to study, salaries, geographical variations in demand and pay.
3. If you are a minority, google an organization called MIM. They offer networking opportunities for students and young people interested in health/medical careers. Some students land internships via this organization.
Good luck!!!!!

Hello, currently I have not a CNA but I was one previously for a brief period of time. CNA's roles are very important they help people at their most vulnerable periods in life. I used my path as a CNA as a stepping stool for my next career. Their positions are very important but I couldn't see my self doing that for my extended career choice but it served its purpose.
