I am a pretty new CNA. I recently (within the past few months) started working in a hospital as a float. I work on just about every floor except OB/Birth place. Doing this has been great, I am learning a lot of different things and I get to see a lot. However, there is a down side there is so much information that sometimes I feel really inadequate. I ask plenty of questions, but I also do not want to be a nuisance to the nurses and other CNAs. I am perfectly fine with all of the CNA work, skills and whatnot. But I feel totally at a loss 70% of the time a nurse is talking to me
. I am trying to figure out if anyone can recommend a book or a website that could help me. I mostly feel at a loss with some medical terminology
and diagnostic terms.
I want to educate myself more, I am doing my pre-requisites to get into a nursing program, but i have not taken any terminology classes, pathology or pharmacology classes yet. please help!
