    You should definetly go to your DON with this one. So many new NA grads are so very, very young and are inexperienced. We are finding this type of attitude and plain ignorance with some of our new, young CMA grads as well ( I work in a clinic setting, si it's a bit different). I think it should be brought to your DON's attention so she can lay some firm ground rules and hopefully get her to agree to some further education within her profession. We had a similar prob with a CMA student working in urgent care who was not experienced, would not shadow anyone to learn the ropes, would not work under an experienced RN and who made plenty of possiblu harmful mistakes. She was given a trial period, which she failed to comply with, and was let go.
    Best of Luck
