  1. Hi thank you so much for your videos but I’m not sure in some videos you said The bed rails to stay up in another you say is stay down can you please clarify that for me thank you very much

  2. Thank you so much!!! Just passed and this was one of the skills I was tested on at Red Cross. IMPORTANT! to remember that critical point of checking for knicks on razor and assessing the facial skin. forgot about it myself and corrected it at the end. Another point for independence would be asking them their preference of beard, mustache, etc beforehand.

    Thank You again for the video!

  3. I watched these videos constantly before my cna exam and I am so happy I did! Because of you I passed my skills exam (and even had the comment of "good demo"). 😆😆😆 Thank you so much!!!

  4. I so appreciate your videos.  My test is slated for June 9, 2016.  I have been studying your videos and I'm more confident.  This is my second time.  The first time, I did not pass.  I had studied your videos and practiced, but during the test, I picked up the wrong size BP cuff and could not hear the pulse.  Thanks again.  My test is in Oakland, Ca at the American Red Cross.
