What are the typical CNA hours?
I'm hoping to find out that they are similar to a nursing schedule of 3 12-hour shifts.
i have been a cna for 8 years. i have only worked in nursing homes. i have been at my current job for 5+ years. we have the option of working 8 or 12 hours. lately tho we have been working 16 every other day because we dont have enough help. our 8 hrs run 6am-2pm, 2pm-10pm, 10pm-6am, and our 12 hrs are 6a-6p, 6p-6a. cnas have a hard hard job.
i am 33 yrs old and i feel like im 60. i work 6a-6p when im lucky. usually its 6am-10pm. i do have a husband and children but my place of employment doesn't seem to care. when we are told that we have to stay and we say we cannot, our job is threatened.
i have been thinking of finding a new job but i am attached to several residents and dont want to leave. if i could find some info to bring to my employers attention i think i can get some action. my coworkers & i are exhausted.
