i was a cna for 10 years before becoming an rn, i wipe butts, so what? other people can't handle it, it is a job, i get paid for it. now that i am an rn, i get positive comment 99% of the time. they say oh wow, "so you get paid well, huh?", " you're job is hard...how do you do it?",
what i hate when they some young inexperience nurses from my home country ask me " wow, so you can afford to buy a ferrari then?"
i was like....ummmm, i am happy with my camry....one question i get all the time which annoys me, is that " so, how much do you make an hour?",
so i say to them, how much do you make a week? nobody poke fun of what i do yet...if they do, i will just smile and say, be careful, i might end up taking care of your mother, father, son, daughter or you someday.
