Stephanie’s Answer

As a CNA you can work a 6am-3pm, 3pm-11pm, or 11pm-6am shift, 12 hour shift, also depends on weather. I remember a year ago we got a bad storm and I was taken care of the clients for 38 hours. We finally had someone able to come in. It is a requirement to work holidays most of the time until you start getting experienced. You have to be approved by the board, have certification of CPR, too. You take a written and hands-on test. It is all timed. I loved working with all the people. However, I went back to school and became a therapist.

Emily’s Answer

Shifts are usually 4, 8, 12, or 16 hours. Patients generally need care at all hours of the day/night so there are shifts available during the day, evening, or overnight. Typical hours per week are usually determined on an individual basis when you are applying for a job- you can either work full time (40hrs/week), part time, or per diem (pick up shifts as needed). For example, at my last job I worked 0.2 fte, which meant I was only required to work 8 hours a week. Many of my coworkers worked 8 hour daytime shifts, while some of them only worked 7pm-7am on the weekends. However, for lower FTE jobs, you will usually also need to be available for weekends and holidays.
