- Compassionate: A compassionate CNA is valuable. She respects what her residents/patients are experiencing; she has a knack for knowing what to say, just when to say it too! She advocates for her patients/residents - she gives detailed reports and updates to the nurses on changes in condition.
- Patient: This CNA does not allow her job demands to get in the way of resident care. She does not **do** the tasks for the residents in order to get it done quicker; she encourages her residents to take their time with tasks. This CNA does not rush her residents thru meals and toileting.
- Work-oriented: The CNA who loves his job is evident to all. This aide rarely uses her cell phone while working; when this aide arrives at work, she is ready to work; she focuses on her assignment and residents; she has little time for small talk.
- Enthusiastic: The CNA who is upbeat and positive is rare. He will have a “Let’s get this done” attitude with a smile. He will not let others’ emotions and negativity affect his day.
- Reliable: A reliable aide is one who shows up for work, on time. She gets her assignments completed in a timely manner and importantly, residents have become comfortable knowing this aide will take good care of them.
- Punctual: On time, every time. Whether it’s arrival time for work, or getting residents to activities and meals, the punctual aide is an asset.
- Hard-working: The hard work CNA’s do is what we are (in)famous for. A well respected CNA isn’t afraid of this work- she doesn’t mind all the lifting, pulling, tugging and moving. She won’t complain when she misses a break occasionally. She will offer to work an extra shift to cover a call out. She doesn’t blink when confronted with confused and scared residents with Alzheimer’s Disease.
- Flexible: One of the truly most important traits of a good aide is whether he/she is flexible…flexible to float to other units, to swap out shifts to cover openings, to swap assignments when needed…to help a co worker who is running behind.
- Self-disciplined: It’s getting harder and harder to find nurses and aides who are more in tune with their residents then themselves. Self discipline relates to one’s ability to maintain control of their emotions and feelings. It also relates to staying totally professional when at work. Not too many aides can do this these days. The skills needed however, can be taught and modeled.
- Focused: Are you totally, 100% focused on your residents and their needs? Do you plan your assignment to fulfill resident desires and ensure you schedule enough time for each resident? Do you carry your cell phone with you? Do you get caught up day dreaming? Do you tend to get involved with other aides’ problems and gossip? The answers should be YES, YES, NO, NO and NO.

Keep your emotional health in great shape with these self-esteem boosting tips.
Taking care of your emotional health is as important as taking care of your physical body. If your emotional health is out of balance, you may experience high blood pressure, ulcers, chest pain, or a host of other physical symptoms.
When you feel good about yourself, it's much easier to cope with life's little ups and downs as well as bigger events, such as divorce or a death, says Jeff Gardere, PhD, a licensed clinical psychologist in New York City.
Here are 10 ways you can practice better stress management and boost your self-esteem. These strategies will help you stay resilient through everyday stresses and when larger personal issues arise.
- Grow your circle of friends. "It's very important that you have a support group of friends and family," Gardere says. "You need people whom you can talk to about your problems — people who will listen to you when you need to get things off your chest — so that you know you're not alone in whatever it is."
- Learn more. "Knowledge is power," Gardere says. If you have a problem, learn whatever you can about the issue or the health condition you're facing. The more you know, the less you will fear what might happen, Gardere says.
- Get moving. Any form of exercise that you enjoy will do. "Regular exercise works as a good partner for people who are on medication," Gardere says. Exercise also works well for people who have mild or moderate depression and don't need to be on medication. Think of it as a great tool for stress management.
- Develop a passion. Everyone should have at least one hobby, Gardere says, whether it's taking care of plants, collecting antiques, or listening to music. You should do something that brings you some real joy — a passion that's all yours and that no one can take from you. Having a hobby and taking pride in it is a great way to boost self-esteem.
- Eat and drink in moderation. Alcohol can be a good stress reducer, but you must indulge in extreme moderation, Gardere says. The same advice applies to indulging in food. You can eat what you want and enjoy it as long as you eat smaller portions and get regular exercise, he says. Maintaining a healthy weight is important for your physical and your emotional health.
- Meditate or practice yoga. These types of activities are effective for stress management. Meditation is a focused form of guided thought. Yoga and tai chi, while movement-oriented, are also proven stress busters.
- Manage your time. If you make a schedule and set goals for yourself for the week, "you'll be more on top of your days, and when you're more on top of your days, you're more on top of your life," Gardere says. As you cross off the tasks on your to-do list, you will feel a sense of accomplishment which will help reduce stress, he adds.
- Get enough sleep. "People who get a good night's sleep wake up with more energy and tend to be more productive," Gardere says. If you are overly tired, every task and responsibility can seem exaggerated, and even small problems will feel like big ones.
- Learn to say no. If you try to do more than you can handle, you will only end up frustrated and stressed out. If someone asks you to do something you absolutely can't do, say no. At the very least, ask for help. And if you can't do it, explain why kindly but firmly.
Nurturing your mind is as important as nurturing your body, and it will make you better able to handle whatever life throws at you. However, if your emotional problems are serious and you can't seem to shake them yourself, or if you're having issues with anxiety or depression, it's very important that you see a mental health professional and get help, Gardere says.
