I'm a CNA and it is aweful. I quit the last job because of management and uncooperative staff. The home I currently work at is frequently under staffed, to ask the nurses to minorly assist is like asking them to do surgery, yeah it's that impossible. I've hurt my back now and am seeing a work comp doctor and going to pt. They are taking me off of light duty but i haven't been re-evaluated yet. I still hurt but mostly at night and then in the morning. They only had me and 2 aides for almost 70 some residents. I've had it and want to move on.
Here are my qualifications: high school graduate, 3.8 gpa, college graduate 2004, courses in fundamentals of nursing, medical surgical nursing, cpr, seminar in stroke care, burns, medical terminolgy, able to use a computer, typing, member of phi theta kappa, psychology courses, anatomy and physiology, and pharmacology. Most of my work history involves deli work, hospital clinicals, cleaning, meat dept, cashier, restaurant, and an assistant for blind students.
