You are reading page 6 of Nurse forced to work as a CNA
I really don't think it's a problem. Most on call/perdiem people get the assignments no one wants and if she is getting paid her normal rates. One of the facilities will do this as well if we're short cnas. They'll have a Lvn as a float or shower person that day, but they still get paid their normal rate.
That you posted 2 comments, both scolding about "complaining", yet didn't comprehend this prior, is a situation only you can address. A question was posed. It was not a complaint. I posted for someone interested in obtaining an answer. For Heaven's sakes, grow up.
I'm still not seeing "venom" or "scolding." If you are thin-skinned enough that you read negativity and criticism into the posts here, I predict you're not going to enjoy this site much. This thread has been quite tame and civil.

I would decline. If I wanted to remain an aide I wouldn't have gone back to school. Aide duties are part of my job at times but it is not my job. I like it that way.

That you read a scolding into the quoted posts is both sad and appalling, on all sorts of levels.
I'm sad for you because life must be hard for you with that degree of suspicion present in your thought process.
I'm appalled because it is incomprehensible to me that someone who spends any time on the Internet can harbor the delusion that they can control the tone, manner & language of any answers they receive to a question posed on an online forum.

Only the drama you wanted to see. I posed a question. I am stunned at the smug, nasty, smarmy angry broads on here. The "nurses eat their own" is asaying with merit, as evidenced on this site.. To those who simply answered, thank you. To those who have a sad need to scold and twist a question into "you're complaining" or "you think you are too good?" or "Oh their job is so much easier", you bring other problems here and sling it out on others. Again, thanks to those who took the time to give a thoughtful answer to a posed question.
I know, right?!

Misinterpretion of communications styles occurs frequently on AN, it's usually a result of a non-analytical communicator taking offense at a poster(s) who has an analytical communication style.

I am in charge on shift. I would never actually get asked to work as a CNA. I was only stating my hypothetical response.Edit: I see you joined this month. Dig back. My response here shouldn't be a surprise to anyone.

Any nurse could "hypothetically" be required to be assigned CNA duties. What if your DON had to do your role, and you then had to be CNA?
CNA duties are beneath NO nurse, they are basic nursing duties.
Unlike disimpaction, some things are not worth the dig.

The catch with this scenario is the "on call" aspect. I would understand filling in for a CNA slot on my regular shift, but not being on call to cover for unlicensed call ins. That could get out of control very fast, as well as decrease the pressure on management to sufficiently staff the joint and/or deal with (possible) excessive call-ins.

Was her pay being reduced? Otherwise being an aide with RN pay is fun usually.
I absolutely agree! And I have been an aide a few times myself, when I'm needed. It's fun every now and again to shake up your normal routine and do something different :)
Old broad, oh yeah. Smarmy.. doesn't quite fit.
