OK well My name is Angela I am 30 years old and have 3 children 3mos, 3 years, and 4 years. I became a CNA in 1999 and basically worked in every setting there is..well I think! LOL Since having my first child in 2003 I have worked off and on. My last job I had to quit in March 2007 at a hospice company cause childcare for my two older kids was just killing us so I have been home for 17mos. I eneded up getting pregnant and just decided I would wait to go back to work so now my baby is almost 4mos and it is time! So I just got a job at a nursing home..haven't even started yet! LOL But its a small nursing home at just 61 beds. I will work double weekend and the pay is pretty decent well more than I ever made! Well I am so anxious for some reason about working???! My daughter is exclusively BF and I am real worried my supply will go down as well as the long shifts. I will actually start PT till I get use to working and they were real understanding about that! I just did the drug test so once that comes back I will start. I am exited but nervous too!
I little more BIO on me....I live in AZ with my SO I will work his off days so no child care is needed. I am also in school waiting to start a Radiography Technologist program. The wait list is SO LONG. I should start next fall and will work through school. I love being a CNA but want a degree! I never thought I would be a CNA this long. WOW this is long...SORRY:) Hope to chat with you ladies and nice to find this group!!!
