    Cna's Hidden World

    This is a testimony to what I hope will fill a much needed gap in what I feel is not only an unspoken epidemic, but also it seems like a taboo one as well. We as a society feel that like a small child, "where seen and not heard" is the golden rule. As a Nurse Aide this is not...

    Respect

    I've been a c.n.a. for over 17 yrs. & I still feel I don't really get the respect I deserve--from friends, family or the public. Most c.n.a.s are students-so just doing it for school-or as a stepping stone. This is my career. But it isn't seen as one. "Why didn't you go on to be...

    I Quit.

    I never want to work as a CNA again. It was too much for me. This job was emotionally and physically draining. I have so much respect for everyone in this field. I managed to stick with it for over a year and I am proud of myself for that. But, I am ready to move on to another...

    CNA

    In my senior year of high school, I took Medical Careers II. I learned how to do the skills the first semester. The second semester, I did my clinical hours in a nursing home and hospital. I worked in the ER, OR, PACU, Hospice, and the cancer center. I enjoyed the ER the most. I...

    Frustrated, Used And Abused

    I am a nursing student going for an RN. I have worked as a CNA in elder care (private duty) for several years. While I love the patients, the agencies and families are a trip. The agencies send you on crazy cases, for example, caring for a couple, each with multiple complex...

    "hey Aide, Room 19 Needs A Juice!"

    I'm pretty sure you've all heard that at some point in your career as a cna. You know, right as the nurse who told you is walking past room 19. Haha but all that beside I love my job as an aide (we call them patient care assistants here in Arkansas and in Texas where I'm from). I...
