How to Become a CNA in Braxton, Mississippi

Since Nurse Aides are needed throughout the Nation, you will be able to secure employment opportunities in any state you become certified. In Mississippi, medical field job security is higher than most careers. You can earn your CNA license after completing a training program. CNA course requirements vary by state according to state regulations. However, many CNA programs can be completed in 8 to 12 weeks. Plus, CNA courses are considerably cheaper than attending LPN school and are an excellent way to get started in a healthcare career.

PCT / CNA / CMA - What's the Difference?

This depends on where you live. Some PCT courses include EKG phlebotomy training. Some Patient Care Technician programs also include HHA (Home Health Aid) certification. However, in some work environments the titles CNA and PCT are used interchangably. Some hospitals in Mississippi may be hiring Nurse Care Techs (NCT), a position which you can apply for with your CNA license.

CMA can stand for Certified Medication Aide or Certified Medical Assistant, both which perform separate but overlapping duties in the workplace.
