    Part Time RN Program

    Hi. I am finishing up my CNA, but am earning far above what a CNA makes at my current full time job. I want to know if anyone knows of part time RN programs here in California. I am most interested in programs in Southern California, but am open to relocating for a part time RN Program. Thanks!

    Mistakes at CNA Internship

    FYI: there’s a few CNA classes at my clinical site. Low and behold, there are students from the other classes that have gotten sick. The towel method is not ideal, but doable. It’s the fact that hand washing isn’t going on and the patients are SO poorly cared for. ALL of them have skin issues. I know someone who’s a DSD and she confirmed that many facilities use the towel method. Our money hungry health system should be ashamed!

    The money can be a factor, but if that’s all you care about, then it’s a problem.

    Mistakes at CNA Internship

    Thankfully I have a very nice instructor and very nice CNA’s I’ve been working with. My instructor talked to me about improving my confidence and was very understanding. Today was MUCH better! Thanks guys!

    Mistakes at CNA Internship

    I am doing my clinical hours at a CNA internship. We did 1 week at a SNF that was ok. It was very small and cramped but we learned a lot. We went to a second SNF and I’m mortified they use bath towels soaked in water and hand soap for clean up of diaper changes. I was doing well at the first facility because they used bathroom wipes for diaper changes. But at this new place this one practice of using the towels and many instances of cross contamination and poorly cared for patients. My whole class hates it. I am not performing well due to fear of contamination and am making mistakes. I accidentally plopped a patient into a wheelchair while my teacher was next to me helping. I had a surge of anxiety, then panicked and walked away. My teacher is very nice, but I feel like now she and everyone will judge me for this. I am really struggling. I have no previous patient care experience and just about EVERYTHING they do at clinical is the EXACT OPPOSITE of what we are studying. The dissonance is really messing with me. My classmates (some) talk about how all they care about is the money. The money is actually not a consideration in trying to go into nursing, but they know how to act like they care in front of the teacher. Seems like those who succeed are the ones who fake the best. I want to make a difference in the health system. Numerous nurses I’ve worked with encouraged me, but just don’t know how to “right” myself. (((Sigh))) Any suggestions.
