I haven't made that many posts, so I'll introduce myself first.
I'm Shannon, and I've been licensed as a CNA since last April 2006. I finally got the courage to be a CNA a few months ago. I've been very scared because I'm afraid of all the stress-- physical and mental-- that will go along with the job.
So, I applied at Hillcrest Baptist for several months and put in many applications. I wrote to HR and fortunately, that made them forward my application. I got my interview the next week. I was up against A LOT of people that they had been interviewing for 2 weeks. It was supposed to take at least a week to a week and a half for the final decision after my interview. However, somehow, the very next day I got the job
! That was yesterday. Now I'm freaking out. I've never been a CNA before.
Can yall PLEASE let me know what to expect? I'm going as a PRN-CNA. I'm refreshing myself on BP's. I just need a quick refresher before I start. I start in a week or two. What all do you do? What can I expect as a PRN?
ALSO!!! Please remind me of all of the abbreviations.
I know that it sounds like I'm a know-nothing, but I'm a very fast learner. I can get the hang of it quick, I just dont want to show up on the job as a disappointment.
