Ok so I am trying to write a post about my experience in the LTC facility where I'm taking my CNA class without it coming off negative and so far I'm not having any luck. So, maybe I should just write what I see.
First - First shift starts REALLY early!! I had to get up at 5:15 to get there by 6:45, man that's early. And yes I know that's what time nursing shifts start, I'm just mentioning it.
Second - This job is REALLY hard!! I mean seriously, it takes a SPECIAL person to be a CNA.
Third - There are some really caring CNA's who are still lacking in giving great care.
Fourth - Long term care is redundant. Of course that's just my perception.
Fifth - I don't think I want to work in a LTC facility.
Sixth - I don't know that I want to work anywhere that has long term patient's, unless of course they're peds.
Seventh - I SERIOUSLY need to lose some weight.
Eighth - I really hope that there is more to nursing than what I'm seeing from the CNA perspective.
Ninth - I hope this post doesn't sound too negative, it's just my perspective after 2 days, who knows it may change before Monday.
