Don't worry, its not all that difficult. Basically your job is to report any changes in the patient to the nurse and help take care of the patients basic needs i.e. helping use the bathroon/urinal/bedside commode, b/p,hr,pulse,blood sugars,baths, weighing,turning, things like that. Its not glamorous, but the patient will be greatful. It can be a heavy workload but you will get alot of experience if you plan on going into nursing. Good Luck. FYI, the course is short b/c it involves alot of basic things, but you will do fine.
