    CNA pre-req class- really unsure about it

    I found some of the comments to be hilarious and slightly harsh but we all have a freedom of opinions..right??...however CNA duties are hard and I applaud anyone that have a passion for what they do:yeah:...I started this journey years ago as a NAT/CNA/LPN/RN it really has allowed me to appreciate those around me and reach out to help someone else along the way...the experience is priceless...before coming into this profession I heard the horror stories concerning CNA duties but once I experienced the difference I made in anothers life by administering a bath, feeding, changing diapers, ROM, turning q 2hrs,...it was a MAJOR impact because not all were elderly pts...trust me if they could they would rather have their dignity....but that is where we all play a part with COMPASSION...my advice to anyone entering this profession...its ok to be nervous, just be in it for the right reasons, the outcome is more rewarding....best wishes:heartbeat:heartbeat:heartbeat

    CNA worth it?

    I agree with the other posters nursing school is stressful enough and in a nursing home type settings the chaos of being short staffed is physically/mentally exhausting...any healthcare experience is helpful however the CNA/LPN/RN job descriptions are different, remain where you are and focus on your ultimate goal...becoming a nurse...best wishes:cool:

    How do I become a CNA

    Hello and welcome back to the medical profession, you have been inactive therefore you will have to start over...most longterm care facilities (nursing homes) offer these courses in a shorter amount of time, not to mention the experience...also visit Pearsonvue for NAT's, apply your state and it will answer any questions or concerns..here is the link...best wishes on your journey...:dance: http://www.asisvcs.com/publications/pubs.asp?thispage=OnLinePubs

    The freeze is pertaining to "new grads" which is sad, hopefully it will pick back up...the seasoned nurses still have more options available...

    loan forgiveness

    here is a direct link also for any healthcare provider, social worker, teacher/educator, officers etc, even for those who have submitted at least 120 payments in student loans the remaining balance can be forgiven if you work in listed areas or do volunteer services for the less fortunate or disabled citizens...a lot of colleagues are not aware of the assistance out there..its all about helping one another....:redbeathe http://www.finaid.org/loans/publicservice.phtml Nurses http://bhpr.hrsa.gov/nursing/loanrepay.htm Nurses Applications http://bhpr.hrsa.gov/nursing/loanreguidance.htm

    Nurse Inventors

    Hi, I think there are plenty nurses out there with "brilliant ideas" we just don't know how to get our ideas off the ground...I would like to patent some type of OTC med created by a nurse similar to the "AIRBORNE" fiasco but without all the lawsuits hype...
