I got a job!!

  1. Hey, I just wanted to let you guys all know that I seem to have landed myself a job. Last week I was called in for an interview and they ran a background check on me, yesterday they called me back and had me come in for orientation today. I spent about an hour signing paperwork, then we went in and trained with a fellow CNA until the end of the shift. It was very hard, very tiring work, but I loved it all just the same. I'm going to have 3 more days of orientation, then I'm supposed to be working on my own. I think I'll be OK but I do feel a little bad because I'm still quite slow. I figure it's just a matter of getting the routine and pace down, though; being good and fast only comes with lots of practice and experience.

    I was a little worried at first that I wouldn't be able to get a CNA job due to the state of the economy and horror stories I'd read of people looking for months, even years with no luck. But I feel like I pretty much lucked out, this was actually the same nursing home I did my clinicals in. I applied there after being certified and they hired me soon after.
