A diagnosis of HCV shouldn’t prevent you from becoming a CNA. There are many nurses and doctors that are HCV positive and continue to practice their professions in spite of this. Good luck-

What do you mean by "a record"?  Many states require background checks these days for persons who work in health-related service jobs.  But otherwise I agree with Bill, your HCV status will not affect your work in the health care industry.

Agree with puppiepaws, it was a long time ago, not a felony, hopefully it will be no problem.  Certainly worth applying for the position.  Good luck to you!
