Ask The Expert: I have been seriously considering becoming a nurses aid. I took care of my mother for many years till she passed on. I work as a secratary at a law firm and frankly I'm not happy. I thought my job would be fulfilling and help people. I have many family members who are NA's and they love it. I know it's very hard work my mother was a nurse. Can you please tell me how I may become an NA and get my certifcation. It would be part time of course for I still work at the office from 8 to 5 pm mon-fri. In case you want to know, I'm 42 years old and in good physical heatlh. If someone can help me or guide me in the right directon it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time, Ms. Perezarce

Hi, Definitely you should find a C.N.A. class in your area. Part-time C.N.A. courses are offered and sometimes you can even receive financial aid or reimbursement of your tuition by the company that employs you. Check out Caregiverlist's C.N.A. School Directory to find classes near you. You may also take a practice or sample C.N.A. test on Caregiverlist.
