"We are short staff and are in need of more highly trained CNAs."
Certified Nurse Assistant (CNA) in Milwaukee:
Pros: Honestly low staff means less supervision for us. We are able to sit more, be on our phones and text whenever we want. Especially in the rehab physical therapy areas. It’s already lax and being short staffed gives us an excuse to get away with not doing everything we need to do. Thank God cuz for me I couldn’t handle a full shift everytime I worked. Yea I feel bad for clients but it’s not my fault they can’t hire more people to work there.
Cons: They get mad at me for always wanting to switch my shifts and they don’t like it when I ask for certain days to work. They always want me to work day They are low on coverage. I am in health care for flexibility. Doctors and nurses do it all the time. So why can’t we as CNA be available work whatever and whenever we want?

"To Be A Successful Caregiver You Need To Love What You Do."
Certified Nurse Assistant (CNA):
To be a great CNA you need to have compassion, patience, be dependable, be able to communicate and listen and a passion for helping others. Being able to work as a team, maintain a positive attitude and a willingness to always be your best will benefit both the healthcare recipient and caregivers. Educate yourself everyday on new ways to make your patients life healthier, happier and fulfilling. As well as continuing to educate yourself about medical skills and procedures.
