    I am new to this place and they told me last night I had a very good aide coming to help me on my halls last night. I was excited cause otherwise I would have been by myself with 27 patients- We started wet checks and she took off down one hall and left me on the other one- When I got done with my patients- she was sitting down playing on her laptop and said she had done 2 halls to mine one hall and they was all dry. I thought it was a little too fast to be done with wet checks. So behind her back I went into the last room she said she had done and that patient was wet- soak and wet, I went into all the other rooms and they was all wet. So I asked her again if she was sure she had check every one- She replied I told YOU they are all dry- so I didn't say anything and went to change them by myself. It was like this all night long. Morning came and time to start getting some of the patients up and she said she doesn't get anyone up- that's day shift job- well no way was I going to do these 2 person's assit by myself- Day shift came in and chew my butt out- I tired to explain what happen but they didn't believe me cause the other aide had been there for so long. Even the RN didn't believe me and I got in trouble- So mad that they think that other aide is so good- Any advice? The night nurse was her drinking buddy so I couldn't have went to her either that night- :angryfire

    I hear nursing school is supposed to be stressful- I know many students who goes on Prozac or some other anxiety drugs- to get though it. Hang in there- cause I'm going to need your support next Fall when I entered into the nursing program.

    I think every nurse should be a CNA first- it's gives you good experience in healthcare- and you get to know what the CNA does Being a CNA is hard work and maybe not as flexible in your schedule so it's up to you.
    Good Luck
