What makes me a good CNA is the knowledge, communication skills, observations, flexibility, patience, emotional stability, physical strength, attention to detail, time management, cooperation, compassion, empathy, and the satisfaction in small gains. Why I became a CNA is for the emotionally rewarding aspects of the work I do for my residents. I have the chance to impact the lives of the people based on the care I provide. What I like the most about being a CNA is that there's never a dull moment. You're the hand to hold, the shoulder to cry on, normally being the first or the last face they see before your shift ends, and the learning skills that will last a lifetime. A personal achievement that I'm proud of is that you learn everything you can, you can get creative if it is appropriate, you always do the best you can do. Being a CNA is a HUGE personal accomplishment, and I'm proud of my resourcefulness, flexibility & determination..
