Hello. I'm having a dilemma with trying to decide what to do during my gap year. I have been volunteering at a hospital and also shadowing but I would like to get a job that gives me some more clinical experience. I have applied to what feels like a hundred jobs with no luck so far and I decided that I should get certification instead to increase my chances of getting a job that involves patient care experience. Right now I can't decide between phlebotomy and CNA. At my local community college, both CNA and phlebotomy classes are offered but I'm leaning more towards phlebotomy because in addition to phlebotomy certification, I can get certified as a clinical lab specialist. They offer a dual certificate essentially. This way, I am not only limited to phlebotomy but I can also work in a lab/research. This dual certification also offers 100 hours of clinical experience ( I'm not sure if this is different from any other institute offering phlebotomy certification). However, I also interested in becoming a CNA but that will take longer to get. However, I may get more direct patient experience. Which one would be a better route?
