  3. Yeh, my husband will hand me my purse and ask "is the checkbook in there (the forbidden zone)....

    What to do

    Actually been thinking about that! I did that before, and losing so many patients (many of mine were hospice, and lived long enough that I got really attached) was so sad, I decided to try the hospital for a while. I might be ready to go back.

    What to do

    I have been a nursing assistant for many years, and wonder if I should go on to something else entirely. I have always gotten great reviews, but this time around it was so so....I had surgery, family issues (sick grand babies and grand parents, two...

    Just got BA...is being a CNA "below" me?

    But I've got to be honest with you: you will get your pride scuffed up a bit if you work as a nursing assistant. Your BF's viewpoint is common, and even your coworkers will assume you are a bit, well, deprived educationally. But, it builds character!...
