I can recommend volunteering, I don't consider it is a waste of time , because you get you foot ina door, make connections, go Human REsources Office and make friend there. Some people register with medical stuffing agencies.

I am still waitibg for reply on my request for nursing homes list.
People help! At least point me in a right direction. How to search for nursing homes that hire without a license, ( in my case it is in New York city.

I don't know about Georgia, but in New York, I heard about a girl who registered with medical staffing agency, got hired at nursing home for $9.00 an hour which is very little for New York, anyway
she did it to get experience only for 3 months and then got hired at a hospital.

Hi,
I live in Jamaica, Queens NY and will be starting my externship soon, my only concern was that after I finished my training I was left dead broke after paying for my classes that I ended up having to wait 2 months to pay my final payment, which is the reason why I culdnt' start my externship until after I paid my final payment to the school, and forgot a lot of what I was trained to do. Do you know of any places where I maybe able to go and volunteer? I really would like to brush up before I take my state boards, my main concern right now is making sure I know how to do my Skills.

Thanks :o)
Damaris

I simply went on-line and loook up hospitals in my area.
Every hospital has a website and a volunteers department. I called them up they told me to vome in and fill out a volunterrs application. I actually downloaded from their website, filled out\and just showed up with my resume and CNA school certification.
BEfore going it isa good idea to find out the name of supervisor;
you want to talk to them directly and make a good impression. That's all.

This thread is like two years old and people are still asking for a list?? It's worth a try I guess, right? Anyways, I'm currently taking my CNA class. I'm already looking for places that I would like to work and be hired. I really would like to start off in the home health care, but from what I've seen, they want some experience as well. I think my only choice now is to look for assisted living facilities and start off with experience there. I've had an aunt who worked nearby my home, so I think I'll use her as a referral to get me in, although she isn't there anymore.

This job hunting is still very tough, perhaps I'll get a list of places that may be hiring as well when I get done in 3 more weeks. Yes, I look forward to anyone listing any places that'll take non experienced cna's.

I have never seen a time where nursing homes don't hire CNA's, try applying at some of them, you're see they will give you a chance always. Just be serious about learning the ways of patient care of the elderly, it can be hard for some.

I have the same problem. I have had my Cna since 2008 and now it is 2010.
I can not get a job as a cna becuse I don't have the experience. So what does
getting your Cna good if you can't get a job?

you have to be careful with most companies i been there also i lost my certification. and had to do the whole thing over so be careful sometimes they take your money and u wont get a job but if any one ask for money don't do it. find a nursing home or a hospital and watch for some agencies please beware i only speak the truth.

TRY TO APPLY AT AN ASSISTED LIVING FACULITY, IT DOES NOT REQUIRE YOU BE A CNA BUT YOU WILL RECEIVE THE WORK EXPERIENCE NEEDED TO APPLY FOR SOMETHING IN YOUR FIELD. PLUS THE WORK IS NOT AS GRULLING AS IN THE NURSING HOME ESPECIALLY STATE FUNDED ONES.
