    A little scared....anyone feel this way?

    Hi, I'm Brittany, I haven't been on here in a while....soo....I'm a Senior in High School now, I'm dual enrolled in a Patient Care Tech program, and I'm (hopefully) going to have my CNA by January (cross fingers)....anyways, Friday was our first day at the local Nursing Home, we didnt do much work, just kind of introduced ourselves to the workers and residents.....and I loved it and I cant wait to go back and interact with them more....but theres one problem....for some reason, I'm so scared that I'm not going to be good at this....I'm scared I'll forget the skills I learned on the manicans in my class, and hurt someone while I'm working.....does everyone go through this?? I know I better get over it because when I hopefully get my RN one day, I cant be going through this!! Its kind of scary.......

    Again I am confused and need help!

    Ok guys, I'm back again...and before I go into my big speal, I just wanted to inform you who know me that I finished my two classes I was working in. Intro to Health Care I got a 97% and Medical Terminology I got a 90%...and in hopefully in august ill be doing Patient Care Tech to reciece my CNA...anyways...I am again confused. I have been interacting at school with some mentally handicapped kids, and I must say, I am absoutly fascinated by them, not disrespectfully, and I have always been interested in mental health and psychology (I finally learned how to spell it!!) Anyways....my hopeful career path is a Pediatric RN because I love kids and I love working with them...sooo...I have alot of questions. This may be confusing, but if you can follow what I'm saying can you pleeease help! 1) What exactly is a pshychiatic nurse? 2) Where do they work? 3) Is there such thing as a Pediatric Pshychiatric Nurse? 4) What type of jobs can I get with a Bachelors degree in Psychology? Can you see where Im going? A friend of mine said a Psychiatric Nurse works in the "crazy home" im trying not to sound disrespectful but I cant think of anything else. Can I still be a nurse with a Bachelors in Psychology? Is there anyone like me! UGH! I hate being confused but Im so good at it! Im mainly just wanting to be clarified on some things so ANY information would help, espicially if you are a psychiatric nurse, or ANYTHING to do with this. Im sorry for the confusion, Im just a high school junior tryin to find my future. Thanks guys and agian, sorry for the confusion. Brittany

    Can someone under 18 become a CNA?

    umm...yes you can be a cna if your under 18, i'm going to be one when im 17 through my high school program...i found out that your homeschooled...so that answeres my question about if your high school has a program...umm...i also see ads in the newspaper advertising cna courses you can take to recieve the liscense after taking the test. (i live in fl, but i'm sure you can still find something in the newspaper in nj) its best if you get in some type of program that does clinical work so you can have hands on expierence when you do get a job, rather than just studying the book. thats pretty much all i know...i cant wait till patient care tech next year to get my cna. good luck! brittany

    Confused again...as usual...

    I was just wondering if it is true or not that an Associates Degree RN does not get as many jobs as a Bachelors Degree. I mean I know its obvious that a Bachelors Degree knows more...but do AA RNs really not get that many jobs?

    Hi, I am a junior in High School, and I have finally found out what I want to do with my life...be a RN...now...I am really confused on how to go about getting my RN liscense. I am currently in Introduction to Health Care this is a 9 week course in my school, and next 9 wks, I am in Medical Terminology, then next year, my Senior year, I am going to be in Patient Care Tech, which is when our class goes to the Nursing Home and volunteers, then at the end of next year, I take the CNA exam, and hopefully get my CNA liscense...anyways...after graduation...what do I do to get my RN liscense? Do I have to get an AA degree before I go to my community college in the nursing program...or are the pre-req's included in the nursing program?...Gosh why does this have to be so confusing! All I want to do is be a RN!!!...oh...and I would love to specialize in Pediatrics...but how do i do that? Do I have to go to 2 or 4 more years of school to do that?...Please Help!
