Hey guys!!! I just recently got my CNA license through a career center at my highschool a few months ago. Instead of going out and getting a job right when school let out, I went for a 7 week visit to my boyfriend in England.
Now that I'm back home, I'm ready to do some job hunting for my first CNA position!!
Do any of you have any advice about questions to ask, things to look for in a nursing home facility, etc?
What are some things that you wish you knew on your first day as an official CNA?
Also, is it appropriate to ask how much they pay if/when I get an interview?
My boyfriend is thinking about visiting me for 2 weeks in November for Thanksgiving, but it's not set in stone. If he is able to, I'd like to take those two weeks off of work. Should I go ahead and mention it now even though it might not happen?
Sorry for all of the questions!!
I'll take any advice you're willing to give!!!
