Kerrie Chambers, MSN, RN, CNOR, CNS-CP, CLNC
I am not currently a CNA, I have been an RN for 25+ years. When I was in my 20's and going to the local junior college to finish my prerequisites for nursing school, I worked for 5 years in a children's home for developmentally and physically challenged children of all ages. Then as I moved into the nursing program, I moved across town and then also worked at a different Children's home for similar types of children as a CNA for about 2 years.
I have been a CNA for a grand total of 7 months! It has been a life-changing experience so far.
