Career Columnist / Author Nurse Beth, MSN 174 Articles; 3,074 Posts Specializes in Tele, ICU, Staff Development. Has 30 years experience. Jul 25, 2017 I want to thank everyone for their input. The last thing I want is for this to CNA to be terminated. She's a hard worker , a better worker than most CNA's I've worked with. However, my priority is my patients. I've already had multiple discussions with the CNA about this so my next step will be to discuss the policy with the educator and the clinical coordinator. Thanks for all your input and helping me realise that my initial nursing judgement was correct!Kudos to you for taking steps towards standardizing nursing practice based on clinical evidence. Your CNA has to make her own decision whether to meet performance expectations or not, once they are clarified.
