What makes me a great caregiver? I am thoughtful, respectful, and considerate. I have a soft but effective touch, and I am humble enough to seek answers from my colleagues if needed. Why did I become a caregiver: I believe I have a gift that others want or need; not just good nursing practice, but done with respect and understanding. I believe I am called by the Universe (whatever higher power you believe in), to share this gift so that others may feel loved. My most cherished experience in nursing is more than one; there is no greater accomplishment than a patient requesting that I be the nurse to administer their care; such as wound care, injections, even just giving out medication. I feel those are the best accomplishments.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
