As I mentioned here previously, I'm going to be starting a job as a nurse assistant very soon. I may have up to 8 pts at one time. Only had one at a time in clinical. I'm sure that every pt will not be total care, but they'll all need some kind of care. How long did it take you who are/have been CNAs/PCAs etc. to feel comfortable and able to manage your tasks?
Also, I'll be on a med-surg floor. Do you think this will make Med-Surg I any easier when it comes time for that?
I guess it depends on what kind of pts/situations I encounter on the job.
