CNAs could very well be called superheroes for their way of life.

They wear special gear to save lives, get things done at superhuman speed and may come off as a bit “quirky” to the average civilian.

    Love working as a CNA but for some reason they all get looked down on in a BAD way.

    Hmmmn…..this list seems familiar, especially seeing as I wrote it and it was published by Scrubs last year. Plagiarism anyone? Not just a word used in college. Please give credit where it is due.
