    Overwhelmed CNA

    Hello everyone, I'm a new CNA and I just finished my orientation. I haven't been on my own for very long but I'm feeling very overwhelmed and unsure of myself. The residents I have are rarely the same ones I had in my last shift because I am part time. I feel like I keep forgetting little things and feel like I'm asking for help too much. One of my residents had a fall on her first day and I've been constantly worrying about just being a good enough caregiver for these people. I greatly enjoyed my clinical week and when I was shadowing a CNA I enjoyed that time for the most part as well. I'm just very scared to hurt someone and I feel like I'm expected to hit the ground running. I suppose I'm just nervous about what this could mean when I become a nurse with much more responsibility any advice for newbies to the nursing world?
