Please be nice to your aides. - page 4
I have just finished my clinicals as a CNA, I am a PLT as well. I decided to stop for now and work as a Medical Assistant, a sort of "short cut" at my age of 40. I hold a 4.0 GPA and have 45 college... Read More

5Feb 25, '13 by FlorenceNtheMachineCrazy nurses working under the doctor's license! No, we don't. Grey's Anatomy, you fail us again. Haha, so ridiculous.
8Feb 25, '13 by KelRN215, BSN, RNQuote from IlliniHelperDoes anyone else find this statement odd? CNA clinicals do not qualify one to become employed as a medical assistant.I have just finished my clinicals as a CNA, I am a PLT as well. I decided to stop for now and work as a Medical Assistant, a sort of "short cut" at my age of 40.
Quote from IlliniHelperHere, OP is describing the role of a CNA as what s/he can do and then says "but I never plan to work as one." NEWSFLASH- Nurses do CNA work- every.single.day. Not everywhere has CNAs and places that do often do not have CNAs assigned to every patient.I hold a 4.0 GPA and have 45 college credits, I can do wound care and test blood glucose, I can also bathe, feed and the hands on care that many RNs, and LVNs feel they are too good to do anymore. I can do stress tests, breathing test, strep, cultures and then take them to the lab and test them. I wipe away the tears of the elderly that cry for you and that many ignore. So if you are not one of these hellish nurses who have forgetten to check themselves at the door, please be nice. The aides are the ones who the family respects and often loves. I never plan to work as a CNA because I would have to put many haughty "nurses"in their place and would end up fired more often than not.
I dont claim to be superior, because I dont view any of you as superior. It matters not in this profession how well you are loved, but how well you love and tolerate others.
And how ironic to say "it matters not in this profession how well you are loved, but how well you love and tolerate others" in a post on a NURSING message board that berates nurses. Love and tolerance much?
Quote from IlliniHelperI earn every penny I make. My degree (BSN) is much more than a piece of paper. I work neither in a nursing home nor a hospital. And a nursing home is in no way "the easy way out." I worked in a hospital for the first 5 years of my career and I am quite sure that nursing home work is as hard if not harder than what I did.Many of you dont deserve the wages you reap. I am sorry, but a slip a paper doesnt warrant the exhorbinate wages you get. The ones who deserve that wage are the nurses in hosiptals. The ones in nursing homes simply do not. Sorry, you just dont. You took the easy way out.
And, FTR, I DO NOT nor do other nurses work under an MD's license. I have my own license granted by the Board of Registration in NURSING of my state. I am solely responsible for my own practice. I have never once worked "under" an MD. In every job I've ever had, my boss has been a nurse. In my current job, there is not one doctor employed by the agency- we are completely nurse driven/nurse run.
It might help to educate yourself a little about what nursing is before you come on a nursing board to bash us.
