Isolation gowns, N95 mask, gloves, goggles, and fear! Are you afraid of working with COVID 19 patients? Is the thought of working with COVID 19 patients keeping you from becoming a CNA or returning to work as a CNA?
Did you know that it is more likely for you to actually catch COVID 19 in public places doing everyday things than taking care of patients with the necessary proper equipment? Yes, this is true. With proper training including training on infection prevention and personal protective equipment as a CNA, you are better equipped to protect yourself and your family. Working in the healthcare field as a CNA you learn the proper way to stop the spread of germs and the skills you need to take care of people. You can also use these skills to take care of your family and friends in the event they get ill.
One of the main reasons a person chooses to become a CNA stems from the emotionally rewarding aspects of the work they do for their patients and the knowledge they receive to be able to take care of their family and friends. You have the chance to impact the lives of people based on the care you provide. At times this may be scary but the reward can be greater than the fear.
