So I have been gone a while. But I am back to VENT!!!!!!
I work second shift so I work with mostly high school and college students. Totally fun!! Well my supervisior had me reorientate one of our high school girls before she left for her first semester of college. This girl is Lazy!! and has NO common sense. I worked three nights with her and then reported back to the supervisior EVERYTHING this girl did wrong and how horrible my weekend was with her. Well the young lady was not let go!!!!!!!!!! Well this past friday my supervrisior lets me know that the young lady is coming back for her Thanksgiving break and I will be REORIENTATING her yet again.
Deep Breath. O.k. So I am working with her on Sat. night. She doesn't do horrible but I did do MOST of the work. She did ONE whole person herself. Back to my orignale point. When we, I mean I, was charting she starts telling me that she doesn't want to get a CNA job at or near her Nursing College because CNA work is a LOWLY job and that she is embarresed to tell her boyfriends RICH parents that she is a CNA. She just wants to wait till she is a nurse (4-5) years from now to get a job in health care. So I asked "What do you mean it is a lowly job?" and she says something like it is job you just wouldn't tell people you have and you certainly wouldn't want do it your whole life.
WHAT THE F**K!!!!!
I Proudly say I LOVE MY JOB!! And i am Proud to tell people what I do. And I am the kind of person to be a CNA till I am an old lady.
I don't know where these kind of people come from. I mean how do you purposely get into health care unless you want to help people. And I mean CNA work is the hands on work. You are the person the resident, individual, patient or what ever you call your people depends on all day and night. We are the people who have the relationships wiith our patients. How is that a job you can't be proud of.
Well I can't seem to form sentences any more so I guess I am done, for now.
