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.
Print and share with friends and family.

- Sep 5, '12 by proud nurseThat's really great! I've said many times that I'm envious of those who work with wonderful CNA's because I could NEVER find one in my 11 years of nursing. Competent, yes..but never fantastic.
I hope you share with him how much you appreciate him, and how that note touched you.
- Sep 5, '12 by classicdameteamwork is a result of mutual respect. Glad he took the time, like you have done, to acknowledge it.
- Sep 5, '12 by ElladoraI love finding little notes like that! We have a DCP at our facility that is absolutely great about leaving them. She has a knack for sensing just when you are down and need a little boost.

As a current CNA, I think I would have always been too shy to tell a nurse that... but next time it happens I totally will!
- Sep 5, '12 by GitanoRNQuote from mindlorThank you for this refreshing post. Unquestionably, I agree that most of the time we get so involved with our 14hr. shifts and it's dilemmas, and at times we seem to forget those who make our task much easier. Having said that, you're no longer a "baby RN" in my eyes you're an admirable RN that acknowledges that a team consist of more than one staff member, in order to provide a high caliber of nursing. And for this I commend you and your staff, as I wish the best in all of your future endeavors... Aloha~Again, thank you to all the wonderful, fantastic CNA's out there. You are the backbone of the floor.

- Sep 5, '12 by sapphire18It is the little things that make all the difference. Sounds like you are growing into a great nurse!
- Sep 6, '12 by Isitpossiblethat was so sweet... one of the CNA's i work with always tells me that I'm a great RN, and she loves working with me... (im new)... Im happy that she feels this way, but I cant figure out for the life of me, WHY she feels this way.. i never have time to help her though I would love to... i dont get it...
- Sep 6, '12 by That GuyThe difference between a good night and a bad night is how awesome your CNAs are. It is a fact.
