  2. New job

    by , 04-21-2009 at 08:32 AM
    So yay! I'm officially a CNA in Washington (finally!) and I'm right now in the training process. That's an interesting little beast. I'm working all three shifts over the course of like 2 weeks or 10 days (if you include my two days off). Last week I had Wednesday-Friday as days (with overtime for PT training), Saturday off, Sunday I worked evenings (which I like), Monday off (but I had to go to work to get another TB test), today and tomorrow evenings, and then end the week with nights. My body ...

  5. The beatdown.

    by , 02-11-2009 at 08:44 AM
    That's kinda' what I'm feeling right now when it comes to school.

    Washington's nursing requirements are completely different from Californias. I've posted that a few times. So I was okay with taking a ton of classes and following their protocol of how things run. Just read in the paper this morning that Skagit Valley College is now changing their requirements so that I have to have a B in all the really hard classes (chemistry for example) they are making me take. I am lucky to pass. ...
