"Over worked not appreciated."
Certified Nurse Assistant (CNA):
Pros: I like the res. I work with on SCU and the staff.
Cons: Haven't got a raise in 5 years and even had a 3% pay cut because I made over 15.00 an hour dont feel very appreciated by the admin we are short handed and we do the best we can a pat on the back or even good job would be nice.

"Dont get frustrated."
Certified Nurse Assistant (CNA):
Realize that although the resident(s) you will be assisting are in a nursing home environment some of them only need tobe looked after. Do not treat these people as if the are babies or incompetent. Give them respect that you would want someone to give your loved one. The best CNA isnt one who is there to make money... Cause trust me maybe just once in your lifetime you may found a job that pays well enough. She/he is someone who in fact is... 1. Truly in love with the idea of caring for the residents. 2. Puts the residents needs in front of their own outside problems. 3.Always ALWAYS has the right word(s) to say to make someone's stay that much better. It is stressful it is messy it is frustrating..... But all at the of the day if tell yourself there is no other job better than this... You in fact a wonderful CNA! Putting someone else's needs ift.

"Summary Of Overall Workplace Environment."
Certified Nurse Assistant (CNA):
If you are a caring, empathetic people's person, you will love this job, or at least the emotional rewards, it is hard physical labor and sometimes you are stretched thin, but at the end of the day, you know you did right, by them.
