recently got hired in a sub-acute facility!!

  1. I have been working in a skilled nursing facilty for the past 8 almost 9 months and recently got hired to work in a sub-acute facility. I'm so excited to start working there but I don't know what to expect as for the type of work I will be doing. If anyone that works as a CNA in sub acute, please let me know the type of work you do there. It would be of great help!! Can't wait to embark in this new journey

    I currently passed the state exam of CNA, but i am trying to look for a job, but most places require experience. I only did 1 month of experience at an Alzheimer convalescence home. any tips on where to apply or where to begin?

    I am a NA in a sub acute rehab. Also, I have nursing school clinicals at a nursing home. The difference seems to be, collecting more samples, more foleys, more iv's, more trach's, and the hope of people going home afterwords, although many do not.

    I guess by sub acute you mean a rehab facility. If it is in a nursing home there may be less of the foleys and trachs as I see in the hospital.

    I do love motivating people to be more independent. That is my favorite part!
