Hi, my name is Shakira Marbury and I'm was an CNA a year ago; I've been a CNA for 3 years and a half. I loved what I did and I love what I do now which is taking care of my grandmother. Being a caregiver takes alot of patients and courage and those are some personality traits I do have for this particular job. My mom has been a CNA for years and she have encouraged me to stay in this field and she knew I had the potential to do it. My favorite part of being a caregiver is meeting new people and being around different personalities. Being the best caregiver that I can be is my personal achievement that I'm proud of.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
