Hello, My name is James and I got certified as a CNA for the state of Georgia about 2 years ago. I've been applying like crazy every since I was certified and yet I would never get called in for interviews and would generally just not hear from the LTC or Hospitals I had applied to. All this changed like 2 weeks ago when I applied for 2 positions (both PRN). I received a call for my first interview which was to work as a PRN CNA for a LTC facility in the town where I live. I thought the interview went great and the lady said she would keep me at the top of her list. (She told me that they will rarely hire a male CNA though because of a low turn over on male CNAs plus the high volume of female patients.) Never heard back from her but about a week later the Hospital connected to the LTC facility called me and asked me in for an interview as well. Went in, everything went fine, she explained that the position she was hiring for was a PRN position and that I would be working day-shift 12 hours for 3 days one week and 4 days the next alternating. I have completed background checks and the physical and drug tests for the hospital and now I have orientation on Monday... any idea on what I can expect? I'm trying my best not to be nervous but I can't help it. I really need this job and I don't want to mess anything up.
Also: Since I have almost no experience besides my clinical's is a PRN job in a Hospital the best thing for me?
Sorry for the long post!
