Hi everyone! I'm going back to school and taking my pre req's for nursing. I currently am an inpatient pharm tech at a hospital, have been for 5 years. Taking the CNA cert class in March, and our hospital is opening up a brand new MBU wing. Working on getting a job up there at the moment..in contact with the nurse manager, having PharmD's put in good words for me, etc etc.
My only experience on MBU is when I've delivered my 2 girls. From what I remember, there were of course CNA's who helped in postpartum, but there were also CNA's who were there for the birth. One admitted me, another helped move me, and a third came and set up the labor table and handed instruments to my midwife.
What do the CNA's/techs do at your hospital? Bp, temp taking, changing bed linens..and what else? I would love love LOVE to be crosstrained for the OR as well. I'm just trying to get a picture of what a shift might look like up there.
TY in advance! So excited!
