Expect to do all the normal things a CNA does anywhere. They'll let you know the details about your particular unit on orientation, as the details may vary from unit to unit, hospital to hospital, etc.

Congratulations!

Sounds like a good opportunity to be in a setting where you can learn a lot. Are you thinking about applying to nursing school?

I worked on a resp unit, not sure if it's similar to your unit, but the CNAs I worked with were really experts on working around vent tubing.  Hopefully you'll get decent training/orientation to the equipment used at your facility.  Congratulations!
