Thanks any one who takes time to read and respond to this. I thought it would be helpful for my perspective ( and possibly others like me) to hear your thoughts on nurse aides or nursing students. I got my cna about a year ago to sort of get my foot in the door, as i was planning on going to nursing school. I think I had this glorified idea, that I would be soaking up information and wisdom. In reality I was surprised to find out i was often treated like a maid, or worse ignored altogether. Many of the nurses seemed to act like I was invisible, which was difficult because I was supposed to be reporting to them. It almost seemed as though the nurses had a particular disdain at times more so than just the way a superior would treat an underling.I am bringing this up not to bash nurses, but to try understand why it seems to be like this.I wonder if some of it is a result of societies lack of respect for nurses, so they feel undervalued and somehow take it out on those under them?Also i feel like reading over this the tone was a little unfair, I want to be clear that many nurses have been very polite and friendly.
