    Hi Ahmeds just as South Bound stated I would try to get into some type of patient care with hands on experience if your worry about not having health care or hospital experience.

    One thing I would like to point out that South Bound fail to also mention, that is being an Anesthesia Technician check out their society ASATT (The American Society of Anesthesia Technologists and Technicians).

    Being an Anesthesia Tech for one year would give you great experience with patient contact with also in addition to learning and trouble shooting the Anesthesia machine, Pharmacology (learning meds), Anatomy & Physiology, Starting IVs, Clinical&Technical experience combine vs. Phlebotomist.

    There's nothing wrong with being a Phlebotomist I'm nearly stating if you want your resume to stand out with heavy direct patient care contact as an Anesthesia Technician or CNA it would be a better route.

    Anesthesia Technicians and Anesthesia Technologist can and are ACLS Certified (Advance Cardiac Life Support) and PALS Certified ( Pediatric Advance Life Support).

    I wish you all the best in AA program in becoming an Anesthetist (A.A.-C.).
