I just finished CNA last year and doing pre-nursing at same nursing school. Hopefully will begin a nursing program May next year. I was wondering if its helpful to get the CNA license in order to get a better job. How about chance of nursing home?

Answer: if you can apply OPT, you can work as a CNA. Normally, you can apply CPT when you are at a nursing school. After graduation, you may apply OPT.

OPT stands for Optional Practical Training. OPT has one year time limit, but a free working permit. For some international students with a f1 visa, as long as you have a legal working permit dont need to worry about interview question. HR does not go deep in general, but if they do you have to tell.
