Actually, I didn't say that I never got a thermometer. - R.I.F.
I am resourceful, not to mention my previous jobs were in management...so, relax a little. I was new, just learning the ropes, and was not going to make waves with someone who obviously was having a bad day. Sometimes you need to observe, watch and observe. I did not fail in the role, the role was not for me at that time. In case you did not understand the first post, I resigned because I had other priorities (not to mention the physical strain was a little much for me to handle). There is a difference. My priorities remain - finish school (2nd degree) and not with a C average (I maintain an "A" avg.).
No one said, that I was NOT a change maker. My whole life right now is about change. However, you need to use wisdom in all that you do, and life is a learning experience. Everything isn't for everyone. That's why every nurse doesn't work at a nursing home, and every nurse doesn't work with kids, and every nurse doesn't work in oncology. It's about finding out what suits you and what you have the knack for...this includes determining what is NOT for you.
I'm glad you edited "staff" with the right word. Unlike you, I am not here to act like I know it all or discourage anyone else. Not to mention, I'm under the weather and home in bed. MY statement remains, I still believe CNAs should know what they are dealing with. Two girls said they got sick from working there.
Thanks for your comment...I guess.
