  1. CNA hourly pay rate?

    Here in Long Island, NY you can make up to $18.75 an hour. That's what my friend is making at a nursing home.
  2. I have a dilemma..Ughhhhhhhh

    I finally got a test date in the mail. It's on March 27th and I'm so nervous!!! I've been studying the book and all of my definitions so I'm not too worried about that. I'm worried about the skills test. I wish they had cna refresher courses, I think...

    This is a very big help, thank you!!!! What state do you live in?
  4. I have a dilemma..Ughhhhhhhh

    When I get my test date in the mail do you know if it will say what skills I will be doing? And does anyone know of a place were I can get updated information like we do when we go to inservices. I'm sure my CNA book from 2007 has old info in it...
  5. I have a dilemma..Ughhhhhhhh

    Thanks everyone for your replies. I contacted Prometric and they said I don't have to take the class over, I just have to take a test. I have to take the written test and the skills test. My problem is, where the heck do I practice my skills??!!! I d...
  6. I have a dilemma..Ughhhhhhhh

    I've been a CNA since March 2007 and I've been out of work since November 2007. I haven't been able to find a job as a CNA anywhere!! I've been to every single nursing home in my area and they keep telling me they will hold my application for 6 month...

  8. Qestions about being a CNA

    We chart everything down on our CNA accountability sheets.
  9. Qestions about being a CNA

    Maybe it is a state to state issue. Here in NY, were not allowed to access the patient's charts. The only thing we have access to is the patient's care plans. At the end of our shift we have to fill out our CNA accountability sheets.
  10. I can't get that smell out of my mind...........

    To me, when someones dying their room smells rotten.
  11. Qestions about being a CNA

    It is in the patient's charts but that's confidential information and the Nurses Aides aren't allowed to look at them. We only see the care plans.
  12. LPN Prep Program at Farmingdale LIEOC

    I took their CNA course too. I was in the January 2007 class and recieved my certification March of 2007. When did you go??
  13. Qestions about being a CNA

    Where I worked they didn't tell you if the patient had aids. They don't have to. It's a patient rights rule. While I was taking the CNA class my instructor told us that also. She said to make sure you take proper precautions with every resident becau...
  14. Has anyone attended this program? If so, can you tell me about it? I just got off the phone with an admissions counselor. She was very helpful and told me to call her back the first week in August and she'll tell me the testing dates. I'm so excited ...
  15. I want to be a CNA...

    It's very rewarding working as a CNA but it's also really hard and it's not for everyone. It's a very, very stressful job! I agree with FuzzyWuzzy. Make sure you do some research before you take the classes. Good luck to you!
