    Question about Activities of Daily Livings (ADLs)

    here are my two cents, well, maybe five cents. [color=#993300]" ... i don't want to leave too much empty space on my resume ... " a resume with your name, address, phone number, education, work experience, might be best. optional category: other abilities, experiences, interests, knowledge - playing piano, singing, drawing, painting, sign language, volunteer at ______, etc., might help. [color=#993300]" ... the reason that i thought i want to add the tasks that i did in clinical under my "clinical experience" is ... i thought maybe some employer might want to know what i did as hand on experience during clinical... " as all cna students, during clinical, should have "hands-on" experience, in my opinion, listing your clinical experience is a waste of the interviewer's time to read. i would not include a list. however, if you do include a list ... i noticed your list has patient and residents. i would use either one or the other or neither. responds to (patient) call lights (checking patient) taking and recording vital signs infection control measuring (residents) weight and height assists (the residents in) with wheelchairs assists (the residents) with ambulation perform rom (on patient) making occupied bed/ unoccupied bed transfer (the patient) w/ gait belt repositioning (the patient) (measuring patient weight & height - this was listed above) missing on your list ... the interviewer might think you had no training/experience assist with feeding bed bath, tub bath, shower foot care nail care oral hygiene hair care: shampoo, comb/brush shave apply elastic stockings measure intake and output post-mortem care specimen collection empty catheter bag, commode, urinal assist with ostomy appliance assist with commode, toilet, bedpans and urinals change urinary drainage bag assist with bowel/bladder retraining transfer from bed, wheel chair, chair, commode transfer using mechanical lift in summary, keep your resume short, no spelling errors. at the interview have a copy of your social security card, driver's license, cna certificate/license, cpr card, etc. (my interviewer was thankful i had a copy of each so that she did not have to get up and go to the copy machine). after the interview, if you want the job, send a thank you note thanking the interviewer for his/her time and stating that you are interested in a cna position with the facility. best of luck. we will be thinking of you. let us know how any interview goes and when you get a position. resume + interview hints! https://allnurses.com/nursing-career-advice/wondering-why-you-84387.html :sofahider
