For a Nursing Tech (CNA with more duties??) at your workplace (my case is at an acute rehab hospital).....
Is it learning in books, then demonstration, then on your own? Are there tests involved? What about outside "class" work? Or is it observing, or practicing on dummies?
I have four full weeks of training where I have to completely start from scratch, as I am not even a CNA. I'm really nervous but excited, I just am not sure how it's going to work. Will I get a set of patients right off the bat, or will I just shadow another tech? Am I supposed to know anything already? I am not in my clinical phase yet but they hired me anyway....I keep reading that most places you need to have a semester of nursing school under your belt--will I be at a disadvantage?
[My goal is to eventually become an RN, however I am just finishing my freshman year in college as a pre-nursing major.]
Well, no matter what happens even if I am incompetent--it will be a learning experience.
