CNA stands for Certified Nursing Assistant or Certified Nurse Aid. These are people who are underpaid, frequently unappreciated and provide back-up and support to doctors and nurses. They are the people who do the menial or unpleasant jobs people don’t think about which, if they weren't done would make the patient’s life intolerable. They carry out this work without fuss or drama and usually bright, cheerful and efficient. They are often treated with disdain by nurses and frequently berated by patients; despite this they do their work without complaint. Unkindly referred to as 'Cleaners of Nasty Arses' their work is essential to the effective running of both hospitals and care institutions.
“What was it like in hospital?”
Dire! A right bunch of miserable bastards except for this CNA. She was always friendly and cheerful, I’d have gone nuts but for her. When I left I gave her a bunch of flowers, just to say thanks like, I thought for a minute she was going to cry, she was so surprised.”

Last night, hit a good lick. I brought home three figures easy for about two hours worth of my time. Not too bad I don't think.

poor unfortunate employees who are disrespected constantly by patients and nurses. They are on the front line for a code brown or when someone's ass needs to be wiped. A.k.a. the most overworked, yet underpaid job in the history of employment :) Our world could not function without the nursing assistants, yet people constantly berate these cursed people.
well, it looks like another patient went apeshit on a cna for giving her water with ice. Of course this poor cna had know way of knowing that this patient did not like ice.

An area in the northern hemisphere where you can feel so free and disregard its liberal views. Many would say there isn't a better place on earth.
The CNA is the place to be!
