Okay I am currently a CNA in a LTC facility.
I am starting my prereqs for nursing school in Jan.
When I was hired at the LTC facility to be trained as a CNA (they provided training) they tried to "unhire" me because they found out I had a documented back condition. I fought it and eventually got the job, though they were not suppose to hire anyone wiht a back problem. I had to disclose it.. they specifically asked about any back problems.
I ended up getting the job through the grace of god...
but is this going to haunt me into my RN days? At this point I am more then compitent to do my job. I hope that I never have the pain and problems I had for awhile.. but who knows.
Anyone have experience with this type of thing?
