How do the CNAs feel about student clinicals. Do you dread it? Do you love it because there are people around doing some work?
I was sometimes surprised at how the CNAs acted when I was taking my clinicals. We never had the CNAs do anything for us, so we stayed away and did not get in their way. It was all on our instructor what we did. When we would come in we would be willing to do the bed making which they knew we would, and there was 6 of us and we were lucky if they had two beds to make. Why not utilize us and allow us to do this for them for a few weeks? When our instructor would check to see who we may give a shower they acted like it was such a big deal to allow us in the shower room.
