I just got accepted into a CNA class being held by a local chain of LTC and rehabilitation nursing homes (Avamere- which is in OR, WA, ID, and CO). I am located in Eugene, Oregon. They are paying for the class as long as I promise to work for them for 6 months. I start on monday!!
I am currently in the process of getting into nursing school for my BSN, just waiting until January when I can apply. Does anybody have any tips for new CNAs starting out in a nursing home setting. I also have not heard anything from the employer about what shifts they are hiring for and if for FT or PT yet. Any tips on what shift I should take if I have a choice? I will only be taking online classes until January so I have flexibility in my schedule. Any suggestions or comments are welcome!
