What’s it like to be a CNA right now?
Jami: “If the job of a CNA was easy, there wouldn’t be a shortage of them. But there is. If the job of a CNA was just wiping butts, they wouldn’t know their residents’ favorite foods, or when they prefer coffee over tea. But they do. If the job of a CNA was insignificant, supervisors and charge nurses wouldn’t rely on them to spot ‘abnormal’ changes. But they do. If the job of a CNA was to just get vitals, they would have time to sit down and talk with each resident for a good thirty minutes each shift. But they don’t. If the job of a CNA was to just show up and dress them, perform their assigned duties, then go home, they wouldn’t leave work in tears knowing one of our residents isn’t going to make it. But they do. If the job of a CNA was appreciated by their peers colleagues, they wouldn’t feel as UNVALIDATED. But it’s not. If you’re proud of all the CNAs, thank you for all you do ❤️❤️.
“CNAs are the backbone of nursing!! Happy CNA week!!
“CNA’s are the back bone to every facility! I may be very underpaid and very overworked, but I appreciate everyone of them!”
