Go back and read what you can...most have been changed in an attempt to play a sick game. This person has also claimed to be a CNA, an RN, an RN student, as well as other things. Derogatory comments have been made about nurses by this person, and frankly, they need to stay off this board. I am sorry you agree with the one post that was an attempt to be sincere.
    I am NOT out of line here.

    My bad. Apologies are in order. I wasn't aware of this persons history on these boards.

    I've primarily been a quite observer on the Student Nurse Forum while trying to juggle full-time work, 8 credit hours of Chemistry and A&P nursing prereqs, quality family time with wife and kids (including vacation in Orlando) and now a weekend CNA course. You could say I've been a bit busy. But not too busy log in every now and again.

    Good luck in your classes. I taught classes for CNA's. Good common sense helps. You can teach the things aides need to know, but you can't teach people to care. That comes from within.

    Working as a nursing assistant will be a great learning experience for you. If you decide to go on to study for LPN or RN you will benefit even more from the nursing assistant position.

    As with many other professions it takes many hands to make a team. Nursing assistants are part of the nursing team.
    Good luck to you,

    I don't know who or what that person did but I have to agree on what he or she had to say. RNpupil did not beat around the bush about anything. Nut the stuff about the nurses not knowing how to take blood pressure is bull.

    Thank God that idiot is Banned.
    Really??? you don't know who that person is??? Hmmmm......Yet another Troll Alert.
