    And since this is a political thread... I doubt Donald Trump of today who is a sexist bigot born with a silver spoon in his mouth, has any respect for nurses. Especially since many of us are female, work for a living, people of color, and/or were not born to the upper echelons of this society.

    It's a shame what the media has done to him. if you listened to his speech, which you probably don't, you'll recognize that that is far from the truth.
    All the media has to "do to him" is roll tape. Trump is a narcissistic, misogynistic, xenophobic, racist, uninformed, lying mouth with a toupée on top.

    You are barking up the wrong tree.
    Nursing didn't change. Corporate health care changed nursing.
    Your unit is obviously understaffed. We all know one CNA for 30 patients is not adequate. Are you aware of the nurse/ patient ratio?

    It was never that I felt passing water and toileting a patient was EVER below me...the MAN kept piling so much responsibility on me, that I could not take on one more task.

    Know your battles, pick them wisely.

    I work at a hospital. We have CNA's some nurses think it's bellow them to even take their patient to the bathroom. Hell they even refuse to get water if the patient needs it. Sometimes the unit is filled and all 30 beds are occupied and due to staffing issues, we only have 1 NA. An NA who is expected to run to bed alarms, get snacks, change an incontinent and take patients to the bathroom. I mean I've seen nurses complain about even placing a bedpan on the patient. It's ridiculous. When did nursing change and how do we change it back to being a team job?
    If they're staffing one CNA for 30 patients, they might need more players on the "team". I don't mind getting water and toileting patients, but I often have higher priority tasks that I have to give greater consideration to. It's not always a matter of "wanting" to help, or not.
    That being said, there are plenty of lazy nurses and CNAs.

    I am just curious as to how the post pertains to new nurses.

    If you look at the DNC so far they have had illegal aliens speaking on stage, and also mothers of black criminals who tried to kill the police speaking on stage. It sure would of been nice to see mothers of fallen police officers who were just recently killed in Dallas or Baton Rouge.
    None of those people were mothers of "black criminals who tried to kill the police". Even the police departments don't claim that. "Black criminals"? Because "black" criminals are worse than "white" criminals?

    I doubt the mothers of the fallen police officers in Dallas and Baton Rouge are interested in attending a celebration event, scant weeks after their children were killed. The "Mothers of the Movement," as they call themselves, are not somehow in opposition to the families of the police officers. Inviting them is not a slap in the face to the others.
