    Since you have at least 4 years to go to get a bachelor’s degere, and you can get the CNA relatively quickly, I would go for it . You will need medical experience to get in to the PA program anyway, and the CNA could be a jumping off point. Medical knowledge is never wasted. I do advise going to a PA program that is a masters as that will probably be the normal route once you graduate anyway. You have plenty of time to further plan out this career, so take your time get good grades and as much experience as you can. Good luck
