    I feel like a flo

    Hi everyone... I've been at my job for almost 2 yrs now... I took a position were I no longer have to work the floor... But when there short staffed I'm always stuck working the floor... Lately we have been having trouble keeping staff.. So I've been working the floor non stop.. I might just go back to being a floor aid... I do miss my residents

    Thoughts on new CNA job?

    I remember when I first started out I was scared and nervous about anything and everything... it didn't help I started at run down facility. Now after 4 yrs I'm the lead cna at my facility and love it... like everyone else has said it does take time to get the hang of things..
