“After being sent home in early March, I realized the strong likelihood that Ketchikan would see little or no tourism this summer. I was lucky enough to renew my CNA license this spring knowing I may need to use it. In March I applied at my local hospital, and was officially hired in April as a CNA in the Long Term Care unit.”
