I became a CNA because I started off with wanting to work with babies, I weas encouraged by my sister in law and parents to become a CNA and move up the ladder to become a RN and specialize in OB. What I like about my job, is the companionship i grow with my patients. I rnjoy doing things for them and making sure they are well taken care of. Personal achievements I am proud of is my family of course, the bond i grew with every client/patient/resident that I've been with. Along with me being team leader of the CNAs on my floor making sure the patients are well taken care of, if patients complain its my job to be a mandated reporter or fix the problem myself. I also help the RNs file, scan med orders and help the unit secretary with filing and setting appointments. Something about myself, well I am outgoing, compasionate, nice and well under pressure. I've been working at my job for a year along with other places and did 3 years in home care. I have worked with patients that are alwasy on o2, kemo, dialysis, and death and dying situations. I am well experienced in short, long term, acute and rehabilitaion.
