About Rita

Hello, i'm currently working per diem status at a rehabilitation hospital where I am able to practice under my CNA license. I also work under a different title, at times, to assist my charge nurse as the unit secretary. I absolutely enjoy the experience and I also work rarely with Hospice under my HHA certification. In a year and a half, if everything continues as planned, I should be done with college and be able to practice as a sign language interpreter.
