  1. I worked at a mental health facility as a PCT. Witnessed nurses mistreating patients, understaffed, unsafe etc. So I left. The second place I worked at as PRN was understaffed and many safety issues as well sadly, so I left. I've had terrible luck finding good facilites, and I've accepted jobs out of desperation (I've learned my lesson). I'm taking the NCLEX-RN soon and will be applying to hospitals. Am I required to list these places of employment while I was a CNA?

    Quitting CNA job on a work day?

    Long story short I am in a temporary position working as a CNA before I take the NCLEX-RN (1 month away). I have 2 years experience as a pct and accepted this job as a cna at a Ltc facility. My employers were on board that my position was temporary. This position is more hassle than it's worth, I see too many things that CNAs are doing wrong that I fear will jeopardize the residents safety (pulling their arms to turn them, pulling diapers from under residents instead of log rolling) the nurses ignore red flags (GI bleeding, bladder distention), I have to get patients up alone who are high fall risk, and things I have mentioned to the nurses and they have blown off. I feel this place is a lawsuit waiting to happen which for obvious reasons I want no part of. I have mentioned my concerns to nursing staff and nothing has changed. Here is my question: Today was my final orientation day, I am supposed to be back tonight for the NOC shift, but l I don't want to come back, I want to run far away from this place. I have already written up a letter for HR, but my fear is that future employers for an RN position will see that I quit on the state healthcare registry. I feel my CNA certificate is in jeopardy working here and I don't know if I can stand to be here another night. I know its unprofessional to leave at such short notice, I am so confused and just don't know what to do, I've never just quit a job so quickly and I've just never wanted to run so fast from a job. I'm sorry this is so long and if I am misinformed on anything. I'm genuinely just concerned for patient safety as well as protecting myself. Any advice is greatly appreciated.
