Hey! This is my first post! YAY! I am a junior in a nursing program and a CNA. I havent worked as a CNA since I was 17 so 3 years ago! I worked at a nursing home and yesterday I just received a job offer from a hospital to be a CNA on thier medical/surgical floor and become a Student Nurse Extern in August. My question is, how is CNA work in a hospital different from CNA work in a nursing home. I have to admit, I am nervous about transfering pts. I had some problems in the nursing home due to lack of help from other CNAs. Some pts should have been lifts and the other CNAs WOULD NOT ALWAYS HELP!!! OR IF I ASKED FOR HELP THEY WOULD JUST GO IN THE PT ROOM AND DO IT THEIRSELF WITHOUT MY HELP! So, how is the work different/alike and how do the number of transfers compare, and are are co workers willing to help?
