  3. first job and feels I forgot everything?
    One thing is don't get discouraged by the experienced, overworked CNA that has been doing it 5 years. They might not want to show you how the facility does things or teach a new CNA. Make sure you...

  4. Bed Pan Skill New York???
    Since you passed your skills test, I wouldn't worry too much about putting a 'chuck' under a bedpan. It is fine to be technical. But you probably will not have too much time to do it anyway.

  8. How do I Handle Trifling Calls?
    Residents who do that I say 'I'll be back to check on you in a little while, ok?' That seems to keep them calm. I always check on my residents so I was not just saying that. With the frequency of him...

  9. no more alarms for fall risks!
    Only pts/residents that truly need an alarm should have an alarm. If a cna has 14 patients and 6 of them have alarms that constantly go off, there is no time to do all the work. She is spending time...

  12. A resident is dying and I feel sad.
    I also had a hospice pt. that was on Morphine (.5ml) every 15 minutes, 7pm - 7am shift. She had cancer and that seemed a high and frequent dose. I didn't question it as I was new to being a cna. The...

  13. A resident is dying and I feel sad.
    That is very hard to deal with and very common in the nursing field. To see someone walking and interacting and then 3 weeks later, they are moving slow and more inactive. I think the hardest part is...

  15. When is it appropriate to share faith at work?: One nurse's story
    Leslie, you might want to note 'true' Christians. Not 'just say you're a Christian'. What does 'education' have to do with being an 'uncompassionate' nurse and a nurse who sticks medication in a...

  16. When is it appropriate to share faith at work?: One nurse's story
    Stephanie, I believe windsurfer was making a point. I could not believe 'one' R.N. who comes in a room and talks about God. Most are not true Christians and will stick medication in a 'patient'...

  17. When is it appropriate to share faith at work?: One nurse's story
    Being a Christian 'R.N.' is also not allowing the devil to come in. The doctor is not always right and the nurse has to follow what the dr. says.

  19. Failed NCLEX, need a job, can I be a CNA in CA?
    I believe if you have proof of completion of nursing school, you can take the exam. When I took mine there was an R.N. taking it and he did not know how to put on a transfer belt. Make sure you know...

  22. Several things are making me consider dropping nursing school
    I do not think you should quit. You do not have long to go. There has to be something in 'nursing' you like. Hema/Oncology, med-surg, BMT, NICU, etc. You do not have to stay a nurse.

  24. I am Afraid.  Please Pray for Me.
    I do not believe it is the 'nurse's' responsibility to 'pray' with the patient. It depends on the relationship she/he has with the patient. The hospital might not be fond of nurses praying with...

    Maybe you should tell her (or in your letter) that you were 'nervous' about not having your watch. Apologize. Let her/them know that you did not know how to react. Let them also know that your...
