  1. Heads up to all new nursing students:

  7. What made you decide to go for ASN or BSN?

  8. CNA'S the other half of care
    I know there is a CNA out there who will read your post and be very, very thankful for a patient like you, Wheels28. Thank you for saying "Thank You"! Sometimes, that is all we ever need to hear.

  17. CNA's-What do you think nurses should do about lazy uncooperative CNA's?
    Speak to them privately first to see if there isn't another underlying problem first. If nothing changes, then write them up/report them. We all have problems in our lives, but if a CNA isn't able...

    I really think that having the CNA program as a pre-req should never be taken off the nursing school roster. If you can't handle the bedpan as a CNA, you can't handle the bedpan as a nurse. The BM's...
