    I started working as a CNA last June and it took a few months to get into my own groove. It just takes time, no one can be perfect especially in the first week of working a new job. Keep your head up and remember nursing schools like to see any previous or current work in the health care field. Plus, you will be thanking yourself when you are a RN. Most RNs that I work with that haven't been CNAs before have to call a CNA in to put someone on a bedpan because they don't know how. Really? A lot of people look down on us because, we are at the bottom basically. Therefore, I made a promise to myself that I will treat CNAs and everyone the same regardless on someones status. And if someone needs help, I will help them if I have time. Keep a positive outlook on it, it is temporary.
