CNA CERTIFICATION BEFORE OR DURING NURSING | PA | MEDICAL SCHOOL
Do you think it helps having a background in basic nursing education before attending a nursing, PA, or medical school program?
Having the bedside manner, confidence, and experience goes a long way when it comes to patient interaction. Many students go into these programs with no experience, and totally feel a sense of shock at the responsibilities that are associated with medical care.
CNA schools provide you with an edge that most nursing, medical, and health care seeking students lack. Basic nursing skills provide ICI students with the confidence needed to approach situations in a way that untrained students will not. We prepare you for implementing these basic skills that you will eventually apply as a health care professional, and understand the reasons of its importance in the care of patients.
