Well, I've gotten to work the med cart for three nights in a row. I might get to work it tonight, too. And which job function do I like better?
CNA. Hands down.
What I'm hoping will happen is that I'll get a chance to do a couple days of each every week. I'm already getting more efficient at passing meds and as long as I keep my hand in that pie regularly, it shouldn't be a problem. But helping folks is what I really like to do and passing meds is just that: passing meds. Important, but lacking that "touchy-feely" that I like.
In any event, I have a job where I'm needed, whether it's passing pills or helping folks get ready to go to supper. The way the economy is, this is a very good thing.
