    Stethoscope Bling?

    GrnTea I would rather have a diva nurse all blinged up take care of me over a nurse with a holier than thou attitude like yours. You're ridiculous. Courses4evr, the fact that you have a family that took the time and thought into attaching meaningful charms on your stethoscope gift says a lot about them and you. If you're allowed to use it you should.

    Does. Anyone like their CNA job??

    Thank you Macenroe! It's so wonderful to hear your story. I could never work both jobs; CNA and teach. I'm retiring from teaching and I'm ready to work at a Catholic hospital which is something I've always wanted to do. It's not about the money, a CNA 's pay wouldn't even come close to what I make teaching now that I'm at the top of the pay scale, but it's what I want to do. Your post was encouraging and thank you! I'm going to start volunteering soon hopefully that will get my foot in the door and see where it goes from there. God bless you and all the good work you do. 💛💙💜💚

    Does. Anyone like their CNA job??

    I have loved my 30 years of teaching even with all its difficulties, but I have always wanted to care for people in a hospital setting. 14 years ago I went back to school for my Masters when I probably should have gone for nursing. Being a CNA will give me the opportunity to do what I've always wanted to do it's just that there are so many CNA's on these boards that hate their job it made me wonder if anyone actually finds the job fulfilling. Thank you for your response.

    Outside of nursing students, is there anyone who actually likes their CNA job? I'm thinking about getting certified. I've been a teacher for 30 years but have always wanted to do patient care in a hospital setting. If you like your job tell me in what department you work and what you do. Thanks!

    Help! Bought an online test bank not sure what to do!

    I think it's a shame that instructors don't do their job and make new tests as often as they give them. If old tests are being posted somewhere the remedy for that is to make new ones. Yes it's work but that's their job. No student should be penalized for using every study resource that's available. The OP did nothing wrong.

    Should I accept a Relocation offer?

    I'm not a nurse sorry. My daughter was considering being a traveling nurse. I just wondered what your package included.

    Too late to be a nurse?

    I will say this to the OP if you want to be a nurse be a nurse don't be a PT because the educational plan works better for you. I'm living proof of that same decision gone bad. In 1972 I wanted to be a nurse but it was easier to get into physical therapy. I did my pre requisites and got accepted into PT one semester into the program I hated it. I settled because it was easier. I dropped out of PT and finished college with enough science credits to be a HS biology teacher and that's what I did. If I had it to do all over again....well here I am on allnurses so you know what I would have done:-)
