  1. Just changed my classes from EMT to CNA, need some advice
    Here in NY, paid EMT jobs are hard to come by. Most are volunteer jobs. However, CNA jobs are a dime a dozen. I haven't heard of any CNA online courses. Probably because a lot of the training is...

  5. Charge nurses double standards
    Yes, I know the OP is a CNA... That was my point. It looks to be an Alllnurses glitch of some kind. I'm not the only one who sees it. �� It's only visible to me in the original post though.

  7. Charge nurses double standards
    Hmmm. If the OP is a CNA, why do I see the credentials BSN, RN after their name in the original post? I'm not sure if this is a glitch or what, because it's not following their name in the other...

  8. CNA to PCT
    I think it depends on the hospital; it will vary from facility to facility what they offer.

  10. CNA License
    That was the physical certificate from Prometric. It's on a flimsy piece of paper... Not an actual "license card."

  11. CNA to PCT
    Generally a PCT is a CNA who has phlebotomy and EKG certifications. You can take a national test from say the NHA, and they will "certify" you after you take the PCT course. Or if you work in a...

  12. Best lotion for dry hands?
    I love the homemade vegan kinds on Etsy. They come in a variety of scents. After using those, I'll never use store bought ones again.

  13. Licensed Nurse or Vet Nurse (tech)
    Which is why in other countries, Australia for example, LVT's are referred to as NURSES. The OP is clearly annoyed at their experience with the vet and this is the way to retaliate.

  16. Do I get paid for orientation??
    Just ask your manager. That's the only way to know for sure. Write down all the questions you have before hand, that way they will be fresh in your memory while you are asking. In the future I...

  17. Bullied at work
    Wait... so you are an LPN, yet they are short staffed with CNA's so now you're working as a CNA? I like how it's your "fault" they are short and your punishment is to be a CNA now. Gee that makes...

  19. Need a little help
    The floats at my hospital make the same exact pay. They both work full time, 40 hrs a week, set schedules. The only difference is they float to whichever floor needs them that day.

  20. Did I completely ruin my nursing career?
    You'll be fine. I'm sure down the line you'll be able to use them as a reference. I would send them a letter either mail or email thanking them for their understanding, showing your gratitude for...

  21. 36:1 ratio?
    There are more mistakes other than passing meds a nurse can make. Also, not all med errors are from "passing." Many meds aren't taken orally either. The CNA's do all the meds? That's great. :no:...

  24. 36:1 ratio?
    Keep looking. You have experience, so your options are greater. I am on a 31 bed unit in a hospital. Sometimes I have the whole floor and 5-6 nurses who all pitch in, and that's STILL hard and...
