  11. What's your opinion on people using personal experience vs professional/clinical exp?

    Are you suggesting I just pick anyone and then terminate them after the probationary period if they don't work out? This is wrong in so many ways. How would a new grad feel about being fired at the...

    Attitude has a great deal to do with professionalism, and it is difficult to hide a poor attitude. Someone who belittles the CNAs has, IMO, a bad attitude. Someone who refers to younger nurses as...
