So the holiday decorations are put away, the Champagne bottles and party hats all sit, empty, next to an overflowing recycling bin, Times Square has been swept clean of confetti; the New Year has fully arrived. In the cold and sober light of the first serious days of 2013, many of us turn to making assessments of ways we can improve ourselves with a fresh, new year stretched out before us with all its promise still intact. For many (including your humble narrator) this involves redoubling efforts to lose weight and be more active. For many, this self inventory may lead to a commitment to spend more time involved in serving others via church organizations or other charity organizations. For those of you here reading a blog dedicated to topics relevant to medical office, medical billing and coding and certified nursing assistant careers, the New Years resolution likely has something to do with taking the actions necessary to improve your income, and thus your overall standard of living. Earning a CNA certification from the Allen School is just the kind of resolution that leads to improved earning capacity and broader job opportunity. Certified Nursing Assistants are in high demand according to many government reports about where employment will be most robust in the near- and long- term. So if your resolution is to get training and apply what you learn to the pursuit of greater health and wealth in 2013, then you’re at the right place. Allen School CNA training programs can certainly help you follow through on this New Year’s resolution.
