    I am currently a nursing student in my Junior year. I’ve been an EMT and CNA in every specialty from long to acute care to pre-hospital/EMS for nearly 17 years. I have found it challenging to transition from the “support” roll to the “lead” roll of an RN. It’s as though I am waiting for someone to tell me what to do even though I KNOW what to do….how do I get over this hump???

    I’ve been a CNA for twelve years and going into third semester of nursing school. I have had to learn to “think like a nurse” in terms of the nursing process. Start looking at your patients like a nurse instead of as a CNA. Talk to your nurses, shadow them as often as possible. You will begin to see things from a nurses perspective more often.
