    Are we overworking the CNA's or are we lacking teamwork?

    The only thing I want to address is the issue with the drains. Im a cna and I assure you I'm perfectly competent and capable of emptying a drain and measuring the output. It doesn't take a rocket scientist. Other than that, I appreciate your post a lot. Its always nice to be recognized

    I really think that me being floated all over the hospital has a lot to do with it too. When I was hired on, the manager told me I would float "occasionally". Fast forward to now, I haven't worked on my floor in a month. I dont know anyone, and I haven't been able to get a good relationship w/ any of my co workers, I haven't been able to establish a routine, theres no consistency... I dont want there to me any doubt about my pt care. Im a good tech, and my pt's are cared for. I just hate going to work

    Its surprising that I would have to deal with this as an RN b/c the ones at my work dont help me one dang bit with any of the things I listed above And please dont get me wrong. I know theres an insane amount of paper work and charting with nursing. I see it every day. But when Im running my rear end off all night and you're just sitting at the desk chit chatting about a vacation and dont even offer to help me, thats what I have a problem with
  14. I dont need any judgement with this, b/c it truly is a deep concern. I am a 1st term nursing student, and a tech at a well known hospital in my town. I can say with all honesty that I hate my job. My floor is a small med-surg floor with only a handful of rooms, which isn't so bad, except all they do is float me. Its rare that I work on my floor more that 2 times a month. I get floated everywhere, including areas that I have not one ounce of training in. ICU is the bane of my existence. Ive never had any training in ICU and I get sent there all the time. The first time I floated there, I was so scared that I cried on the phone to my husband in the break room for 15 mins. I hate bathing people, Im so sick of cleaning up feces, Im tired of being bossed around and treated like a waitress, Im tired of pulling elderly people out of bed by myself to get them on the toilet and throwing my back out b/c no one will help me, spending 45 mins in one pt's room just to get them to the bathroom and back, getting run ragged every night... I actually threw up in a pt's bathroom the other night b/c she sprayed diarrhea all over the toilet and I had to clean it up. Everytime I have to work I dread it the whole day, and I cry the whole drive there. It breaks my heart to have to leave my husband and kids to go to a job that I hate. My back hurts 24/7 and Im contently exhausted. Ive begged my manager to let me cut back my hours but she wont So my question is this: If I hate being a tech, does that mean I will hate being a nurse? Im almost done with term one and Im just scared Im wasting my time and money.
