So this is the thing I’ve been a cna for 7 almost 6 years  my first job was in a nursing home sniff facility . I worked there for almost 2 1/2 years. Then after that I work in pediatric subacute  hospital setting for almost 2 years then we transitioned to adults subs acute. Same employer but different DON. I’m still working there up to now. But the DON  when we still pediatric sub acute   retired already... and my DON  on my  first job    Just recently quit. So I don’t know who will sign and verify my experiences. I’m confused cuz it’s says on the part 2 of the application only the employer needs to fill it up. But if the supervisor doesn’t work there any more can they still sign bec they’re the ones who’s there  and saw how I demonstrated the experiences . I hope you guys can help me. Than k you so much.

 

Hi everyone I’m currenly a cna  I’ve been a cna since 2013 and I have  peds/maternity experience as well.

I would say something like, "Proficient at the level of an employed lic. voc. nurse., evaluated by observation (or evaluated by skills check-off for those things not normally done frequently).  What is important that they put in enough hours performed to make sense for your length of employment.

Im working 12hr shift  and 36hrs per week so how are they gonna count the hours? Do they have to total that hours  the whole time I worked there?

Well, that is what they are attesting to isn't it?  The average number of hours for a full time employee is usually calculated to be 2080 hours per year.  Or, if you take one week vacation and work 36 hours for the other 51 weeks a year, just do the math.    Or, look at your paystub at the end of each year.  It will show the cumulative number of hours you worked for each year.  Your payroll rep should be able to figure this out for the DON to put on the paper.

So I have to ask the payroll for the total hours and hr for employment verification.  And ask my DON to sign right?

The DON just might figure this out herself.  Give her the paper and see what she says.

Ok thank you so much.  One more question  I have 53 months already in this job but I also have nursing home experience-for  1/2 years  Do I need to include that job as well? Or it’s ok if I  don’t?

It doesn't hurt to give them all of it, to cover your bases, but you will have to make a copy of the form and have the other job fill it out too.
