    first job LTC need advice

    hi guys. thank you for all the response and feedback. sorry I'm just now posting. I've been really busy at work (2 jobs) So, I started at the LTC. they gave me 3 shifts to train. I am working the overnight shift, and truth be told, I think that was a blessing. After my trainer and I complete the first med pass ( that *** takes a looong time!!) we start charting, after that, we visit all the residents to make sure we don't have any falls (by this time, almost all of the patient are asleep). after that we go back to nurse's station so I can familiarize myself with the software we use to chart. if all is well up to this point in the night, we go through our cart and organize it. then a quick lunch break and a cigarette, then we continue with our second med pass (4am), but the second time is a lot easier than the first. at this point, its around around 5am and we start praying that no concern will arise from the residents (no falls, admission please). at this point, my trainer will start going over our endorsement sheet (6am). after endorsement, I get to kick back for 30 minutes then I clock out. 6:30am just a side note, the CNAs in my shift are very proactive. They are very easy to approach. all the LPNs and CNAs keeps telling me I got lucky I got put in overnight and in that particular unit. (there are 3 units, 3 carts per unit). one night, I saw one CNA getting ready to bathe a resident, and another CNAs came over to help him. I was like, that's pretty cool. I will be working by myself next Saturday, I'm a little nervous again. any advice guys I really appreciate it!!

    cna cert. exam tips/advice

    Good morning everyone. i'm getting ready to take my cna certification exam and i'm looking for any advice or tips about the skills part of the exam. Anyone from nevada can share their experience. I'm just trying to get a feel on how the skills part is given. I guess just the flow of things. I'm not worried so much about the written part.i'm really trying to focus on the skills, I guess stuff on how should I start, should I do things a certain way? Thank you guys for all the feedback.
