I took my cna class at the bulkan educational institute on court street in brooklyn. Class with book was about 750.
I only had about 2 months LTC experience but they also hired 2-3 others that had NO healthcare experience at all.
When I worked in LTC the nurses did all v/s on morning shift but on the night shift they asked the aides to do it. Now I work in hospital the nurses do BP and cna's are responsible for TPR.
I just got hired in a NYC hospital at the rate of $17/hr for night shift which is awesome since I was making $8/hr at a LTC.
I just got hired at a hospital and night shift is 11:55pm-8:10am...weird
Thanks everyone I was hoping for 12 hour shifts but this one does 8 still waiting to find out what unit I will be on
At the LTC I had only 2 days orientation with zero experience I just got hired at a hospital and training is 2 weeks
I got my job my sil will help out with childcare until I hire a sitter.
Update I was told to expect call from HR so I guess thats a good sign
I applied for a hospital job online sunday night monday morning I was called in for an interview with 2 hours notice. I went totally unprepared and was late for interview. At the time they said they didnt know shift, hours, days etc.. About 30 mins ago I received a call and was offered the position however I declined because it is night shift and I have a small child and my husband doesnt get home until 11:30pm. Anyway instantly after hanging up the phone I regretted saying no and called back asap to accept the offer. Honestly if they say yes I have no clue what i'm going to do about childcare but getting my foot in the door is a big deal. Now I'm here waiting for the director to decide if she still wants me. Stressful all around the odds were already against me and I just made it worse.
Go to an agency to gain experience but be prepared to start with low salary
No that would be lying
Towne nursing pretty much accepts anyone but salary is low.
I dont think you can give the actual shot just remind the patient to do it
