New CNA in Med-Surg

  1. Hello everyone,
    I have only 2 days left of clinicals in my CNA class. I am currently pounding the pavement, looking for work. Next week, I have an interview for a CNA position in the Med-Surg department of a hospital. All of my clinicals have been in nursing homes. Will my duties be very different in the hospital? Thank you so much for any info.

    Not really although you may have more patients that are younger and some that are more acutely ill than the ones in LTC. But,, baths, vitals, assisting to bathroom and ADL's will be the majority of your job.
