Don't give up! Nursing assistant classes are notoriously boring, but the information is just essential, so you bear up under it!
I love being a NA, but there is nothing enjoyable about fecal impactions, shampoos and baths, diapers and just good ol' hard work.
You just have to turn your head around the other way for a minute. It is not the tasks themselves, it is the person who benefits from the action. If you focus on the comfort and well fair of the the patient, you will hardly notice the smells and the yuck. Just imagine what it would be like to be impacted, with dirty hair and a soiled diaper, unable to even shift your weight enough to prevent a sore, and you will find that protecting that persons health will be your job, not the stuff that is necessary to achieve that. Does that make sense?
Next thing you know, you will be on a crusade to improve patient care!:spin:
