I've just recently been hired by the hospital as a Med/Surg CNA. (
) All CNA's there do 12 hour shifts instead of eight hours. That sounds a little brutal! Are there any Med/Surg CNA's out there who have any insight on how you get through the day? Is your week "messed up" by only working three long days? I think that I will enjoy three long days/four days off better than a normal daily schedule, but I can't be sure.
I've done a 13 hour shift at the nursing home, so I kind of have an idea of what it's like.
