    Your experience on your first day is a common occurrence to mostly new CNAs or even Nurses. Haven't you heard of the saying : the old eat their young or something like that. When you are new, the experienced treats you as though you are useless and retarded. Therefore you can only help yourself by being tolerant and before you know it everyone around you will slowly warm up. On my first day as a CNA, the lady who oriented me went to the supervisor and reported how incompetent I was and that she didn't think that nursing was for me at all. The supervisor called and gave me feed back, I didn't run away I worked hard with all my heart and I ended up being one of the best CNAs in the facility. Because of my experience I have always given warm welcome to new employees. (9 years experience in the field as a CNA and RN)
    Good luck.

    There is a course being taught to caregivers/cna's regarding working privately. I have a friend who used the system and makes $20/hr with one client and $25/hr for another client. There is really good money being a CNA but you can't work for companies. They only pay 8-15/hr. It is hard to love your job when you can't even provide for your family on this type of income. You should use them to get you toward your goal or private clients! Let me know if you are interested but I can't recall the site name right now. G'luck!

    The flip side to this type of situation is that you may not be able to attract enough private clients to make it worth your while. At least with an agency you have your taxes paid, some measure of job security, and other stuff like workmen's comp if you get injured on the job.
