Hi there! I am in the midst of the CNA course at my college (it is a prereq for the RN program) and I have never heard of an approach called "Windows and Doors"...I will be interested to find out what it is.
I do think that the team of 2 CNA's per 15 residents is a good way of doing things. So many things that you will do as a CNA require the help of another CNA...and if you aren't already "partenered up" then depending on who else is working that shift, you might run into some trouble securing the help you need
But with this teams of 2 approach should eliminate that problem!
Just curious, from you post it seems like they only do the "dynamic duo" approach on PM shift? AM shift is just as busy, if not busier, with 2 meals and all the baths! Once I finish this class and get certified I'm looking forward to a job on PM shift because it seems less hectic....but maybe I am missing something?
Anyway, good luck starting your CNA...it feels so good to take a giant step toward your dream, doesn't it?
I know the first day I put on those scrubs
I felt so darn proud, happy, and excited!
And I hope someone clues us in as to what is meant by "Windows and Doors"!
