Hi Lamar.

When hiring a "caregiver" there are standards that have to be met, just as with any job. A licensed C.N.A. with a few years of experience knows what the job actually entails, and it is no picnic. Yes, the person does have to be "caring" BUT many are using the C.N.A. certification as a point of reference to a higher certification. This is something a potential employer needs to be aware of, in the beginning.

I've hired plenty of PT, OT, LPN and RN students to fill the position in the past, and these folks are moving along the certification trail. That's all well and good. What we look for is someone who is satisfied with being a C.N.A. and all that goes along with that position.

You see, a C.N.A. who loves the job knows that by moving forward they will lose contact with people they care about. It IS the "caring about" part that I look for in applicants.

The software you speak of filters out the "I don't really want to WORK at this JOB" and the "I am only working to fill a requirement of internship hours" or the "I'm going to be an RN and spend my life doing paper work" but making more money than the hands on CNA.

The people I look for must be caring and happy with that position as their lot in life. There are plenty of good folks out there who love the "hands on" with patients and don't want to move out of that realm of patient care.

I don't go it alone Lamar, and if software can help me find the 'caring' folks, I'm all for it. If I set the parameters, and the software works, I would be quite happy to filter out the groups I mentioned.
