- by IdianaCNA1993 Aug 28, '12Ok you can only say that if you have went from working in a factory to being a CNA or a nurse and actually find it a better life. well my friend told me that I wouldnt like it at this factory that I applied for that she and her husband work at. Because there is a lot of bending moving and its very fast paste and that you get cut alot. I came back with "why not? I wouldnt have to deal with unhappy people, I wouldnt get made fun of by the people that I am caring for, I wouldnt have to whipe anyone butt but mine, I wouldnt be comming incontact with illnesses that could potentially kill me, I wouldnt get pooped peed puked or bleed on, if I was offered two jobs that paid the exact same things one being a factory ad one being a nursing home but the factory gave me flexability to go to school I would take a factory job." she replied "well nursing seems so much more easier you get to sit and you get paid more." i say. "well at my last job I got paid as much as you do in the factory on regular time I didnt get benefits and I didnt get paid extra an hour for working a holiday or weekend like you do some night I never got a half hour break I never got to sit for ten minutes and I had somone get sent to the hospital plus I delt it rude people." dont get me wrong I loved my CNA job I had my days with it just like anyone else.
It just makes me mad how people think that just because you are an aide or a nurse you must have it so easy at your job. Just because we have some kind of education we are all having a blast at out jobs getting to get paid to party and sit on out butts. I understand that working in a factory isnt a walk in the park either but thinking about the negative things dealing with as an aide just makes me want to run to the factories. But the factories arent where my heart is I want to be a nurse to take care of people I want to beable to wake up in 10 years and say look at where Im at now!
- Aug 28, '12 by SuperMeghan91Most days I'd rather work in a factory. At least you don't have to put up with people hitting you.
- Aug 29, '12 by mvm2wow I worked in a factory for 9 years and now am working as a home aide, and the stress of this job is 1000% percent worse. I would never dream of saying nursing is easier then factory work. At least when you make a mistake at the factory they might have to scrap a part or something. You make a mistake here at this job and you are affecting the health and well being of another person. And as for all the bending and body exercise she is talking about...please it is nothing to the 5 to 10 miles of walking that a ltc and hospitals nurse/cna walk and the physical work of pushing heavey med carts and doing all the care that these people need. If she spent one day as a nurse or cna I am sure she would go back to her factory job and kiss that dirty old floor. though I will say that factory work can be very hard on your body. i had tendenitis in my wrist from the work that I did do, and even after 10 years of stoping that job I still have a few problems with it.

- Aug 31, '12 by IdianaCNA1993Quote from StudentNurseKittehGet over it those things are not my strong points, not everyone is the best at spelling and gramar and I normally dont live on the computer 24/7 any way. As for my screen name yeah my computer at the time had a glich and before I could catch it, it was to late.Note OP's poor spelling, typing, and punctuation. Says a lot about a person.
- Sep 4, '12 by Paws2peopleQuote from StudentNurseKittehOh, I don't know... I hate spelling errors as much as the next person, but I don't think it reads too much into a person. I see NP's and RN's on here daily with spelling/punctuation errors. It doesn't mean they are uneducated or a bad person. Spell check is a wonderful thing We are wandering off topic...Note OP's poor spelling, typing, and punctuation. Says a lot about a person.
- Sep 4, '12 by MsKeycena/phlebtechI worked in a factory once for 2 wks and I hated it. I can't stand in one spot all day for 8-12 hrs. It seems that your brakes go by extra fast. But I think everyones body is tolerable to different things, and it should be ones personal opinion only if they have done both.
