About Wendell

As I grew up in my neighborhood,I witnessed a lot of accidents that I assisted in, I took that desire to be more helpful and joined the California Army National Guard as a medic. I was trained in Fort Sam Houston, Texas and then sent to Lederman Army Hospital in San Francisco, CA. I supported training exercises in which I ran troop medical clinics. To get my nursing license, my unit unit sent me to a civilian LVN school. I did well in school and obtained my license. I the n worked at several hospitals in Southern California. My experience was in ICU, ER, medical-surgical floors, and medical jail floors. My later years in nursing have revolved around home care nursing. I have worked with everyone from babies on ventilators to the elderly. My skills are very good, I am passionate about nursing and I always strive to increase my knowledge base. I am also considered a people person. If I am selected to care for your loved one, I will be actively involved. If it is a young one, I will learn what the therapists want to do and I will follow through. Although I love to interact with my patients, I take my lead from the person receiving care. If it is desired that I perform my duties without much talking, I can do this. I always strive to learn and so my best personal achievement was to attain my bachelor's degree. Although, I have given my background in nursing, I will add some of my personal interests. Befor

    I like helping elderly. Its a fun job, challenging but rewarding. I have working in this field for many years and I am proud that so many lives had been changed, and lifted up through me. A life of 90 years old man who could not take care himself and the family were so busy, and he was able to survive for seven years. I have been caregiver and CNA for more than ten years. I have worked in nursing homes, hospital and private duty in California, then I moved to Colorado for better future, Unfortunately my family won't move there because of cold weather. So at this time I'm back to California to be together with my family and looking for a job here.
