Medical or health sciences or allied fields are one of the hottest career options for students, but most of them are confused about where to start with. Many of them end up opting for the wrong options and in hind-sight get frustrated because they don’t carry out extensive research. Many veterans in the field will agree that starting out as a certified nursing assistant can prove to be a great career move. The job of a nurse aide is very stable and you can earn good enough salaries along with gaining experience in the nursing field. This opens many career advancement options for you by continuing education; you can go on to become a Registered Nurse (RN) or even a physician as per your will.
The next question for which many seek answer is the cost of CNA classes; well unlike the other courses and medical degrees the cost of becoming a nursing assistant is very low. CNA courses cost anything between $400 and $1200 whereas a RN degree can cost you up to $10,000. Of course the duties of a RN or that of a doctor is highly specialized and complex, but then nurse aide is just an entry-level job, so the cost is not very high.
