I passed last month, on May 12! :D I took my older sister as my skill volunteer. I got partial bed bath, shampoo hair in bed, denture care and dressing patient with a weak side. I just turned in an application today for a CNA position at the hospital my mom works at. I think they're looking for someone with experience, so I may have to start out at a nursing home, or look into HHC. I start nursing school in August, I'm terrified, but I hope to graduate as an RN in May 2013!!

Yay officially a STNA!!!

Skills: Handwashing, Denture Care, Occupied Bed, Vest Restraint in Bed & Antiembolic Stocking

:clpty::smiley_aa:flwrhrts:*wine:anpom::ancong!:Hello fellow and future CNA's! Passed my written exam 2 months ago and passed my manual skills yesterday after failing the 1st time 2 months ago. :heartbeat:D:lol2::yeah::up:The written part was pretty simple if using the "common sense" answers. I'm pretty sure the manual skills are nerve-wracking for a large percentage of students. :idea:Most important advice I can give to "pre-exam" students is practice, practice, practice!!! I reviewed my skills over and over at home, using a large body pillow as a patient. Grab any items around your house for props that closely resemble the real supplies. If during your practicing you realize you forgot a step, START ALL OVER right away!! And finally, when at the testing center, do your best to CALM :eek: yourself down, and if there are any steps you keep forgetting, say those keys words to yourself right before the manual exam. Most instructors will help out with "reminders" during the skills to help you along. Trust me, I have severe anxiety issues and if I can pass, ANYBODY can! So onto the next hard part of being a CNA, finding a job :nurse:. It feels so good to have accomplished the education and a great motivation for those who really enjoy the medical career. Best of luck everyone!!:redpinkhe

My skills were dressing a patient, ROM Lower, and Pulse and respiration :) Three great and easy skills!

I got the certificate today! I finally passed the clinical part! I passed the written part on the first try, but I failed the clinical part because I was so nervous, so I screwed up. The 2nd time, I got:

Handwashing, denture care, mouth care, and transferring from bed to wheelchair.

I made some minor mistakes and I still passed!

If you think you only made minor mistake then you'll pass! I made a few minor mistake! Not just 1 or 2 mistake.. more than that. I still passed.. if you make just one major mistake = FAIL..

Passed written and skills first try one week ago Saturday!! It was intense. Out of 14 people, 7 passed and 7 failed. phew!

You got the EASY skills! Not fair!:lol2: Anyhow Mirela, congrats to you and hope you continue with your nursing career because you are young and already have your "foot in the door"!! Trust me, I'm over twice your age and if I could start all over, I definitely would have aquired my education many, many years ago.

Best of luck!:nurse:

Hi everyone. Former lurker, finally coming out to interact. I successfully challenged the NC exam and was pretty happy about it. It will get me in the door at some places (most don't ask if or where I took the course) but if I can ever get a cheap seat I'm definitely going to backtrack and take NA I anyway. :rolleyes:

I don't remember if I posted here or not but I passed mine on August 13 in NC. I started my in home aide job yesterday and I LOVE it!

Passed my Nebraska state exam yesterday! :)

My skills were:

1. Beginning and Ending 5

2. Hand washing

3. Blood Pressure

4. Routine Oral Hygiene

5. Catheter Care

6. Moving Up in Bed (One Assist)

7. Changing an Incontinent Brief (and she had squirted Hershey "poo" all over the bed and gown so I had to change those too while I was at it...:uhoh3:)

But I passed! One more thing checked off for nursing school. :nurse:

(ETA: Whoa, looks like NE makes us do way more skills than some of you! I'm jealous. Everyone in the class had to do the first 2 on my list and then we all got 5 more random ones to do.)
