    Im looking to get hands on patient experience so I became certified as a CNA, but I cant seem to land job at a hospital. Been applying since the semester ended, but no bite at all.
    Should I volunteer at a hospital in the mean time?
    Any suggestions?

      Who's to say you need to be in a hospital? If you'd prefer to gain HCE in a hospital, gain HCE and work experience in a long term and acute care facility first. Hospitals are likely looking for applicants with some sort of experience in an acute care setting.
