  1. CNA Training at a Long-Term Care Facility?

  3. toileting a resident
    Does your facility have transfer devices such as the Sara lift? Otherwise, if you feel it is unsafe, I'd get a second person to assist me. Team work is an awesome thing!!

    I worked as a CNA as I went to nursing school. Most places do have a tuition reimbursement program. The catch is you need to work for them a certain amount of time after graduation. I'd say as...

  11. Is this a good sign I might get hired?

    Not everyone can just choose their job/position. And yes, if you can only work in job "X" then you better take it. I would not say specialty jobs were "plentiful" when I graduated, but I didn't just...
