I have worked in long term care for almost eight years as a nursing assistant. I am currently working PRN as a registered nurse but also work as a CNA when short handed. I graduated in August from Saint Elizabeth School of Nursing. My capstone was done in the nursing float pool but most shifts where done in the ICU and CCU.
