CNA work

  1. I have not done CNA work in 4 years, I have decided to go for my LPN,so is there any area where I can work that is not very strenuous and not so much will be thrown at me all at once, because my skills will be a little rusty I know. I'm trying to go for my LPN at the same time. I know everyone says work in med/surg to get valuable experience, but right now bills and school are my priority so I have to balance the two out and still have my sanity if thats possible, so help me out somebody!!!

    If you're skills are rusty, maybe a med-surg unit is the best place for you to be. There are small hospitals that I have seen ,that are willing to train CNAs, but it will most likely be strenuous, as that is the nature of the work. But asking for help, and using the proper body mechancis is always a good idea.

    What area are you located in? I also know some clinics use CNAs, and even outpt. surgeries. But what kind of work you will find will depend on the area you're in. But I wish you the Best in finding something that works for you, and in reaching your goal.
