I have accepted an offer for an ED tech position, my expected start date is May 6th. For this position, a CNA cert was highly preferred. I got my cert 5 months ago and this is my first position in the medical world at all...feeling very lucky and blessed to have gotten this position without real world experience, aside from clinicals 5 months ago...from what I was told, it is quite a bit different than normal CNA jobs. My question to the ED techs is this:
What should I go over again in my CNA book to help me better prepare for this position?
Should I pick up some extra books from the book store to better prepare me?
If so what are some good ones to look for?
Are there any areas, or things that I should really focus on knowing extremely well?
It is a teaching hospital and they said that I will be given opportunities to take classes on phlebotomy, and reading EKG's, among a few other things that my duties will include.
I just really want to be prepared for this.
If there is any advice for me, I am willing to listen!
Thank you for your replies!
