I have been a CNA in my hospital's nursing resource float pool for 2 years and I just got this idea from my mom that I should start a journal and write down some things about my night at work after my shift is over as to keep a journal of my work experience... She is always amazed at the crazy stories I bring home about what happened at work and she says I could write a book someday...
I don't know that my stories will ever be published, but it got me thinking.. this would be a really cool idea.. Some day several years down the road, I can look back at this journal and laugh at all of the crazy things that happened in my first job in healthcare!
I only wish I had thought of this sooner!
Do any of you nurses or aides keep a journal? Do any of you have any suggestions for me?
