What makes me a good CNA is empathy and compassion, patience, reliable and most of all trustworthy. I've been a CNA almost 10 years and I still love what I do. I love providing care to those that would otherwise not be able to do so. The smile on their faces is overwhelming and makes me feel I have done my job right. I have always enjoyed helping people, so I know I am doing the right thing. Being a CNA for as long as I have has taught me so many different things, I've worked in nursing homes and some private duty. I love what I do in helping others that I've ever worked with. Taking care of sick people that needs my help gives me joy in my heart and it lets me know they need people to work with them that care. My greatest accomplishment has been to care for people who no longer were able to care for themselves.
