Hi, I'm Vanessa and I've spent the last five years as the accounting coordinator for a company that manages several Continual Care Retirement Communities (CCRCs). I saw a lecture on Culture Change, which is similiar if not identical to the Eden Alternative principles, and decided I wanted to be apart of that movement. So, I decided that I needed to be a CNA before I could ever be the one to bring these concepts to the floor. So, I was offered CNA training, ceritification and a job through a small 44 bed nursing care facility. I start the seven week classes on Jan 5. I'm excited I have a plan and I'm working it, but I'm also scared...so I want to make friends here. Any advice? Any of you into the Culture Change/Eden Alternative movement? Any of you think I should call it off if I'm out of comission one week a year due to lower back pain? any of you know of sucess stories where CNAs
I talk a lot but here is my general plan: Accounting Coordinator for 6 CCRCs 2004-2009 CNA Certification Work as CNA Finish degree in Human Services this year. Culture Change Consultant Credentials ? Senior Care Counselor ?
