    Pros

    Some of the pros for working here is that Duke look good on your resume, hard work but you like the job that you do. Meet people from all over the world, etc.

    Cons

    Working as a CNA duke does not have many chances are opportunities for the skill level. The highest you can go is CNA II or HUC. Duke will find a way for you to do both jobs, and still, get paid less. The place is full with too many chiefs and not enough Indians. I have seen nurses getting a pay raise up to nine percent, while the NA's only get a two percent raise. The work is tough, when I was working at UNC we had at least four to five NA's to staff a thirty patient workload. Working for Duke on some floors, there is two NA's with sixteen patient apiece. To me, that is modern-day slavery. Most of the floor nurses are lazy, and seem to be unskilled. To me, most of the nurses have the "I know it all because I have gone to school" attitude. Watch out for the clicks and the unit. Most Nurse Managers are biased and will take sides. To me, the only place where NA's can go is the float pool, where you don't have to deal with so much on the floor staffing and the headache. For all my years of experience, all I get paid is $13.76 an hour.

    Advice to Management

    The Na's are starting to feel less, and less needed. Please pay us more, because we need a cost of living rise just like your nurses.

    Cons

    Advice to Management

    Stop with the antiquated policies and institute common sense protocols for everyone to adhere to. Fix the parking situation and raise compensation to at least a standard level.
