I am currently in nursing school and almost finished. Currently I am a CNA on a med-surg floor and I love my job and the experience it is giving me. Jason, having CNA’s are great they will do anything for you but just remember not to take advantage of them. On our floor the nurse ratio is 1:6 and there are sometimes I have up to 18 patients that I am bathing, changing their linens, putting them on a bedpan or assisting them to a bedside commode or bathroom,getting ice and snacks. This is giving the nurses time to do their assessments,meds and documentation. CNA’S and Nurse’s make a great team and helps more with patient centered care.
