It gives u a plus when applying for nursing school. Just wondering if there is any male Certified nursing assistants here? Do you have to do any butt wiping?

I was a CNA straight out of High School, and worked part-time as a caregiver as well for close to 8 months. I was fired because I was sick of all the phlucking female drama and authoritative BS.
Ever cleaned diarrhea out of a phat, hairy crotch?
Ever had to clean puke off of an adult's entire body?
Ever had to handle a completely piss-soaked set of sheets and mattress?
I would never ****ing do that stuff 8 hours a day unless it was my own flesh and blood relatives. I'd rather be permanently deployed in Afghanistan, since that felt like heaven compared to that job. Run away OP, and never look back.*Libertarian.

Become a fork-lift operator, dental assistant, or something else - all those vocational classes take just as long to become a CNA and pay much more. If you're going to do something crappy for a while pick something that doesn't involve literal **** everyday.*Libertarian.

Don't do it. I'm a cna and it's not worth it.
- you can either become a cna and get a job at a hospital that your college/nursing school do RN clinicals at... This way; youll be easily hired in that hospital when your done nursing school.
Or become an ER tech, good job and it's fun .. Not a lot of ass wiping and good ER experience ...
Nursing schools will not care if your a cna or not. I'm not sure where you heard if your a cna, you'll get more points. My nursing school couldnt care less.
