WORKING AS A CNA

Some clinics will hire untrained and inexperienced workers and provide on-the-job training, but these opportunities may be hard to find. RCI offers training within medical facilities as part of our unique clinical program. Becoming a CNA is often seen as a stepping stone to becoming an RN or LVN. This natural transition in this medical profession often results in many job openings in entry-level positions.
