    Stay calm! Fake it until you make it! Be confident these people are trusting you for answers and care. Communicate with your CNA's before the start of shift they will be a key part of your success! They may know all sorts of tips and tricks to make your job more rewarding. Smile and introduce yourself to every patient. Smile some more
    Good luck!
