A great jumping off point!
Certified Nurse Assistant (Former Employee) – Rockford, IL – June 9, 2012
Days were hectic and stressful, but I learned to manage my time and work efficiently for my residents without sacrificing the quality of care. The management was okay, but could have taken into consideration the extent the job of a CNA entails because it really is mentally, emotionally and physically exhausting. The co-workers are a giant family, and anyone who works there will tell you that you can find a strong support group that works with you everyday. The hardest part of the job is not having enough time or hands to complete all the tasks before the time is up while trying to be kind, courteous, and considerate of your residents and their families who need you, even for the little things. The most enjoyable part of the job is giving back to those who gave before you. It is knowing that for maybe a minute or more you made someone more comfortable or happy when their situation is not the most favorable one.
