I put in my resignation notice today...


Judging from my posts I am unhappy where I work at. I adore the residents but, you all know the rest :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

I am not sure if I will be pursuing more CNA jobs. I intend to go back to school...shall see how the cards play out. The management there has zero intention of changing and I want no part of it anymore. I am finito.

Wish me luck. I gave it my best shot but at the end of the day, I control my happiness and destiny. I was miserable there and felt like a beaten dog. It is not cool to have the dreaded pit in my stomach on my days off because I would dread going back to work. I would rather have job hunting woes on my plate. ;)

You'll find something better. I know you have done home health and LTC, but have you tried hospitals yet? I'm sure you are more than qualified for such a position.

Good luck! I was in the exact same boat last year. I swore I was done with CNA work when I quit my last job. I eded up finding something I love. :) I hope the same happens for you, whether it's in the nursing field or not.

Good luck. I am in the same boat. The LTC facility I work at is horrible, at best. Poor management and I am convinced that the only requirements for the CNA is a certification and a heartbeat. I have threatened myself to quit many times but I have been there for nearly a year. I know my residents love me. I take care of them wholeheartedly. They appreciate this so despite all the crap I keep going back. I know I am making a difference. Someday, when I get my nursing license and eventual RN, I will have a good job, but I always want a job where I can see the difference I am making one smile at a time.
