I'm a nursing student and I'm hoping to work as a CNA while I am in school. A hospital I want to work at is hiring CNAs for the post-op, medical, and surgical floors. I was just wondering, from your experiences, what responsibilities and tasks you have to do on each respective floor and how different those tasks will be? I'm just not sure which floor I want to apply for. Thank you!
Post op is probably the busiest, with lots of vitals, patients unable to do much as they are groggy/disorientated from the surgery or in pain. Post op patients are normally 1:1 until they return to the floor from the OR, I'm not sure what CNAs would be doing?
Both medical and surgical are equally busy.
