Let’s face facts; once you’ve completed your CNA training and have secured a job, you’re going to have some adapting to do. That’s just the way the world of employment works. Sometimes our adaptations are easy, because we happen to work with a Director of Nursing and Registered Nurses who are rational, competent and fair. On the other hand, sometimes things are a bit different. If you happen to gain a position after CNA training that seems unreasonable, stressful, or unfair, there are things you can do. You probably won’t learn these things in CNA training, so we’re covering them here. Before we address the solution, let’s take a look at a real life situation I found on a CNA training and career forum. Yes, it’s a good idea to read those occasionally. You’ll gain great inside into the working world of CNA’s after CNA training.
After CNA Training – Real Life Situation (This could happen to you)
What If You Are Unfairly Treated After CNA Training?
I love real life stories of CNAs and their experiences after CNA training. You couldn’t make this stuff up. It’s wrong all the way around. So, bottom line, what if something like this happens to you after CNA training? First of all, call the Department of Labor immediately. You have rights as an employee and there is a process to termination that must be followed. Secondly, in this case, I would report this entire case to the State Board of Nursing. Since there were others who were terminated, possibly without just cause, there could be quite a case here. Third, I’d advise this person to get legal council right away. Often, attorney’s won’t take the case unless they feel they can win and they won’t take a dime of your money until the case has ended. At that point, they are paid through your settlement, so still, no money out of your pocket directly.
After CNA training, there are often strange or unfair employment situations that occur. Know your rights. That’s the best safeguard for your future after CNA training. For more information on CNA training and careers, we invite you to follow our blog.
