1. Make a Good Impression

Your first day on the job is of vital importance. This is your chance to make a good first impression on your coworkers, supervisors, and patients. By introducing yourself with a smile and a firm handshake, asking questions, taking notes, and showing that you are eager to learn and to help however you can, you will be sure to make a great impression.

2. Be Prepared

Before your first day, you should take care to learn as much as possible about your new workplace and the duties that will be expected of you. You should also make sure that all of your paperwork is in order and that you arrive a bit early to ensure you are completely prepared when your shift begins.

3. Care for Yourself

You cannot care well for others if you are not caring for yourself. Be sure you eat a healthy diet, drink plenty of water, get enough rest, and follow all safety precautions. In particular, be sure that you practice proper lifting protocols. It may be tempting to take short cuts, but your back will thank you for caring for it properly. Also, be sure to invest in the best shoes you can. You’ll be on your feet all day and good shoes can significantly improve your experience as an STNA.

At PCHS, you’ll get the education you need to enjoy a successful career as an STNA. By following the tips above, you’ll be sure to make a great first impression. We wish you luck and success as you begin this rewarding career!
