    well if I was in RN school or even in LPN school I would prob start with a classic II SE for school and than after I knew how to use a one two sided chest piece and can tell the difference from sounds I would but the Master Cardiology

    stethoscopes for CNA

    hey I finally passed my CNA exam, but I didnt recive my papers, so I am waiting on that; its only been like a week and a half almost 2. As far as a stethoscope what would you use, can u vote what you would use Littmann Classic II SE(noisy at a LTC or hospital) Master classic II(same reason above and smaller) and softer ear buds for both or a regular double lumen tubing, with i believe plastic ear pieces so they do hurt. Much appreciated

    CNA written exam

    being nervous is one of your biggest enemy when it comes to big exams like this, so shake thos combwebs and another thing never cram it never works;study months to weeks in advance if you can, but yes skills is the harest part and where most ppl goof up. To me MY skill validation was at my school and not at a test site so I got lucky, and the test I failed my first time, but re took it 2 months later and passed, dont realli know why I waited so long.

    CNA test results

    well when we went to the exam site, they said it would be on the nurse registry with in 48 hrs and about 2 weeks for all the paper wheter you passed or not. For me I failed the first time but retook it 2 months later, ask me why, i dont knw myself but after the 2nd time I passed and I am proud I did decide to retake it. plus I can go back to my teacher's class with knowing I passed; I dont know if she knew I passed.

    CNA use of bell?

    i see, even tho I know people uses bell for b/p would a use of a bell as a CNA not useful
  14. Chris NS

    what kind of scope do you use on the job as a CNA

    ok i give you that the question was unclear, but anyways would you think that always haVing your own stethoscope (even if its a cheap one) and if its not wouldnt the ambient nosiE bother some people; also you would have to look for a stethoscope everytime ur doing a b/p
