I start my new job tomorrow as LPN in ALF, I am excited! This past week I have gone into the job 4 days in a row for interview, paperwork, TB results, Orientation. etc. Since day one I felt the hostility amongst the CNAS. I was able to overlook that since the administration was absolutely lovely and welcoming. I also apprecaited that the DON took the time to explain to me the personal side of their facility and that is; they do have attitude problems. I appreciated that the DON told me she did not want me to walk in blindsided, she gave me plenty of examples of what has recently gone on and ways to deal with situations. Nothing too bad just certain personalities. Also, while sitting in her office I whitnessed a few scenarios and loved the way that the DON handled the situation fast and professional. It made me feel comfortable to address an issue if needed and not feel like i am getting somebody in trouble. Today was my last runaround day before starting tomorrow. I walked out taking a big deep breath cause the CNA's truly are rude and impolite. I could not believe the things I heard them say and do in front of the DON! I hear a lot about CNA's trying to run off new nurse's so I am prepared to deal with hostility and I am prepared to brush it off, kill them with kindness, not feed into the negativity type thing. I am just hoping that tomorrow goes smooth! And that when I start off alone and out of training they aren't too hard on me! However I will give the job 6mos-a year and if the environment of staff is taking a big toll on me and cannot be resolved or lightened, I may have to seek elsewhere.One positive point to make is that I will be training, and have met with 1st shift yet I will be sccheduled primarily for 3rd so i will not have to deal with these particular meanies!
