I've recently taken a CNA class for the purpose of adding the cert to my application for nursing school. (This had been discussed in a previous thread of mine). Now that I've finished, one thing concerns me about the nursing profession. I've had to work with six nurses to date; all connected in some way to the course. With the exception of one, I found all of them to be impersonal, painfully unimaginative, power hungry, spiteful, and generally unhelpful. (All the things I am not, and all the things I don't like in people). Now I'm not here to start a flame war, but is this what I can expect in terms of coworkers, or is it that CNA instructors tend to be burned out RN's? My experience has seriously caused me to reconsider this profession.
