    One piece of advice you wish you knew when starting?

    TIME MATTERS. Be fast. Be efficient. Get a wristwatch you like. Use it. Always be acutely aware of the time.

    Shift Work Disorder is Eating My Brain

    I did do a search but could not locate anything that I found useful, but perhaps I just wasn't looking right. My problem is that even on eveningshift my body is still on dayshift sleep schedule and I lie awake at 4 am as though I had to get up for a ...

    Shift Work Disorder is Eating My Brain

    I'm going from dayshift to eveningshift. Usually 2 to 3 days followed by 2 to 3 evenings. My problem is that when I go from days to evenings, my nights sleeping after evenings I still wake up at 4 am and can't get back to sleep again.
  4. Greetings friends & colleagues, I work as a CNA on a dayshift / eveningshift line. My goal is to sleep at least 7 to 8 hours every night. Lately, I am frequently tired, irritable, anxious, and depressed. I think shift work disorder is eating my b...

    Shift Work Calendar App for Android?

    Greetings everyone! I was looking for recommendations for the best shift work calendar app for Android. I would strongly prefer to pay for it if it means a better app with no advertisements. Any suggestions? Thanks!

    What should I do first

    Well, first things first. DO NOT HAVE CHILDREN. Humans are an invasive species by every definition, we do not need more help destroying the planet. My feeling that if you did "start a family" you will be less likely to pursue nursing school. Children...
  7. I am not sure. Health care can be a passive aggressive environment, so it might be best to keep your long term career goals just to your friends and family. Competitive? It is competitive, depending upon the school, to be admitted to a nursing progra...

    Having a hard time finding a part time CNA job

    That's a tough one. I can't think of any CNA position that would meet those requirements. I often forget what actual day of the week it is because my schedule is all over the place. Is it possible to temporarily stop being a CNA to focus on school? I...

    Are you in the "United" States? Are you a member of a union?

    gender "issues"

    As health care providers, we should always take a humanist perspective and believe in people as people for people. As human understanding grows and changes, so must society along with it. And as the great David Lo Pan said, "You were not brought upon...

    Getting a CNA job with a misdemeanor

    I'm not going to ask what exactly you were doing, but it's very very important that we are always on our best and most careful behavior at all times. We cannot afford any criminal charge. That being said, have you spoken to a lawyer about your charge...

    Reporting nurses

    That's a tough one. Maybe you could stick up for the residents in a non-confrontational way? Something like, "Oh now Nurse So-and-So, I know you don't mean that! Mrs. Distinguished Resident is a proud of his Japanese heritage!" Mocking residents is n...

    Nursing Shoes for Males

    Greetings! Dedicated CNA here needing to replace his worn out pair of New Balance walking shoes. I was thinking about just getting another similar pair, but I have the feeling there's probably better shoes out there. I bought the New Balances speci...

    Please help... Am I on the right path?

    1) You can do anything as a hobby, such as writing. If it's a hobby that takes off, good. But it should remain a hobby until then. 2) Be sure that you always have a supply of condoms ready. USE THEM. 3) I wish you greatest success in nursing school! ...
