For those who have done apprenticeships for nursing certifications, was it worth it and what was the experience like?

I've seen a few hospitals and clinics offering apprenticeships for nursing certifications, and I was curious as to what that may look like and if you feel as if it was worth it. What are the positives and negatives of an apprenticeship? What did your day to day life look like as an apprentice? Any additional insights would be appreciated, thank you.

For those who worked in healthcare while going to college to get their BSN, how was your experience?

I'm considering the possibility of working as a CNA while simultaneously going to school to get a BSN. For those who have done just that or similarly, I'd like to know how your overall experience was. What was the most worth while? What was the most difficult part or most significant obstacle you had to face? How did you overcome these difficulties? Any other insights, advice, experiences, etc, would be greatly appreciated, thank you.

As a CNA, how did you not become overly connected to your patients or residents?

I am trying to become a CMA, but when I was in clinical for CNA, I experienced the sadness of my patients missing me so much to the point where they didn't want to eat unless I fed them. I would like to know how to avoid such bittersweet dilemmas.

Career Advisor Here!

I have a student interested in the medical field and looking into a CNA or Medical Assistant program. However, he/she has current DUI's on record. My question is: Would this hurt his/her chances with gaining employment after training? Being more transparent: would a hiring manager turn an applicant down for having a DUI on record? Any feedback is appreciated!
