- Sep 6, '12 by SarcasticLVNThat is so sweet! I see a lot of segregation between some of the nurses and cnas at my work but my thing has always been, I can do anything in the scope of practice of a cna so why not help when I can? If it doesn't interfere with nursing duties I'll help reposition, transfer, change dirty briefs lol! Sometimes a cna needs help and they step out in the hall and tell me to call so and so when I can and I'm like uhm I'm right here.. They appreciate that. I have a few Thayer make my shifts so much easier.
- Sep 6, '12 by seanynjboyQuote from That GuySOOO TRUE!!!The difference between a good night and a bad night is how awesome your CNAs are. It is a fact.
- Sep 6, '12 by cyb3rRNAgree 100%! I couldn't do my job without my CNAs!
- Sep 6, '12 by Glycerine82Thanks for sharing. I needed that. . It's horrible to kill yourself during a days work and not feel appreciated. Nice to be reminded most nurses appreciate a good CNA.

- Sep 7, '12 by allthesmallthingsQuote from mindlorI tear-ed up a little when I read this - and I'm not a tear-er upper.So where I work....its crazy, insane, frenetic LOL. After 14.5 hours I head to my car and see a note on my window. The CNA that I worked with had left it and it read....."You are a great RN".
Now I disagree with that. I am a baby RN, still learning but getting stronger everyday. Truth is he is a great CNA. I felt like a jerk all day because I just was not able to help him as much as I like to.
The fact that he took the time and effort to leave the note was really meaningful to me. Without him, the day would have been impossible. He is head and shoulders beyond our average CNA. He rocks!!!
Again, thank you to all the wonderful, fantastic CNA's out there. You are the backbone of the floor.
