- Jul 18, '12 by tomc5555IMO your instructor could have instructed more and criticized less. Our instructor would hands on show us what we needed to learn. Its supposed to be a learning process and I would never train or treat someone the way you were during clinicals.
As others said, brush it off, leave it behind. Don't let this dissuade you from nursing.
I commend you for wanting to help the residents you were given, you showed empathy and care. I think you conducted yourself professionally under difficult circumstances.
- Jul 18, '12 by Amber628Day shift is CRAZY period. CNAs have a tough job but its way harder to be a nurse! Although it sucks now you'll get better; BUT u do need to use common sense. When your a CNA you may have 10-15 pts on your assigment and you have 3 hours to get them all fed & out of bed, not to mention a few will have showers, some will be total care and others you may have to use a lift! It takes time and youll learn your pts and find a routine. Your job will orient you DONT worry. Try to find other aides at your job, seasoned aides can be rough sometimes at first but they can teach you MANY tricks and things to help you along
