    Hello all I found out yesterday that I was accepted for the Fall 2013 semester. I didn't even check my TEAS scores until after I got the acceptance letter cause I was way too nervous! I FINALLY had my family open the email...those seconds waiting to see what the answer was were torturous!

    A little about me...My name is Stephanie. I am 22 and a new mom to my 6 month old. I also work at HMNMH and have been a CNA for 3 years.

    How did you guys do on the TEAS? I got an 81 Pretty good considering the test was scheduled right after I got off my shift!

    A CNA's scope of practice is basic patient care; meaning we do not give medications, or perform any type of invasive procedures. As a CNA I do vitals, record I/Os, help patients with activities of daily living, weights, EKGs, surgical preps, etc. I have been a CNA for 5 years, 4 of which have been in acute care. SNF are a bit diffrent.

    Hey have you looked into malpratice insurance (for school)? I was kind of confused because iit said if you already have a cert. (CNA) they automaticly "add" the RN student insurance at no additional charge? Just wandering if you have looked into it yet.
