As I am a night cna, my "day" consists of me hitting the floor running. I am super busy after getting report from the day crew. I am a master at time management as you would not survive very long without it. Keeping a pen is a life's mission. One must be able to be selfless. When a patient is so sick that they are unable to make it to the bathroom with loose stool, you better volunteer to clean, change and add warm blankets to your patient with a smile on your face! We are the caretakers of our nurse's. A cna will volunteer to help change a patient in isolation even while their feet and back are swollen. Blood sugar checks, constantly holding your own bladder to help your patient's go to the bathroom first, lifting, boosting, turning, preventive care, getting the brunt of your patient's emotions....is just the first 5 hours of a shift...its AMAZING.
