Hi everyone. I have been nurse for some time, but recently new to supervisory role and this site. I have some random questions that am curious about as well as trying to get a feel for this site.
My first question is orientation for CNA's. How long do you typically have a new cert CNA orient for an am, a pm and noc position. What do you use to determine their level of skill prior to hiring, previously I assumed with the cert that the basics were there but am coming to find out this may not be so true....
Do the DON/ADON wear scrubs or business type clothing, frequency of either working the floor?
My biggest frustration to date is both CNA (union) and nurse (non union) call offs. This has been a long standing problem at this facility, but more on that in a later post.
