    New CNA first job.

    Hi I just passed my the CNA exam March 18th and have had several interviews so far every interview I have been on I have been offered a job. I recently agreed to work at a LTC in merritt Island. I am very nervous I will be on the rehab floor. I am not very big so It is hard for me to move people.I am worried I am going to be slow. I got a 93.5 in my CNA class and did very well in Clinicals but that still does not make me feel better. I will have 2 days of orientation and the 2 weeks of training. I just want some advice please.

    Test tomorrow

    My test is tomorrow and I am so nervous. My class ended 3 weeks ago and I have still been practicing. I met with my teacher today and she helped me with the 3 skills I felt the most nervous about. I am in Florida and testing in Palm Bay at the Casell school. Advice or anything you think that helped you pass would be great to know!

    Have my test date and I am very nervous

    Thank you guys so much! I will take all the advice and try to use it. I asked my teacher if she would open the class room up for me so I could study the skills. Cause she has all the equipment. She said she would but then said I don't need it that she knows I will pass so that made me feel better.

    CNA clinical advice encouragment

    Yea and the guy could not stand very long. I learned that you put the brief on when there laying down and you roll the person to get it on and it just seems easier. But I guess every cna has there own way o doing it and you have to be confident in the way you do it. I guess I am doing okay the cna I shadowed told my teacher I am doing well.

    CNA clinical advice encouragment

    I am in clinical right now I feel I am doing okay but I thought I would do better. Like putting on adult briefs is hard the cna I shadowed had the guy stand up I thought they lay down so you can put them on. Also today I was trying to help make beds and the cna was particular about the way she wanted it made every time I made a bed she would re do it even though the way it was made was fine. Also I don't want to force feed but if I politely feed the patient the cna look at me like I am doing it wrong. Any advice or encouragement would be great. Thank you!

    Have a few questions some advice please.

    I am in a CNA class right now and doing well. We finish FEB 22nd and then I still have to take a test to get my license. My question is should I wait till the I take the test to get my license before I start my general ED for the LPN program at my local community college? I already know I have alot of work to do in the math area knowing I am bad at math. I would love some advice from someone that was bad at math but got better. Cause that is the one thing holding me back I feel like.

    Brevard community college

    I was just wondering if any one knew what you need before you send your application for the LPN program? I went on the site but it just has the major courses and not the general ed or pre requs. So if you could help me out I really appriciate it.

    Overwhlmed CNA student

    My class is only 8 weeks long and we meet mon-thurs 9am to 1pm. We already have a test on monday and I just started class on JAN 3rd. The test in ch one through 15. I am so worried she gave us a study guide on what will be on the test but then she added a bunch of stuff saying it will be on the test so I feel like i do not know what to study. we do not really get homework but she tells us what she thinks we should study. and work pages she thinks we should do. I feel overwhlmed like I am not going to do well. Is it mostly common sense that will be easy? Please help me and give me some advice?
