I've known I wanted to go into the medical field, since I was a little girl, I always said I wanted to be a doctor. Then I realized that nursing was more hands on. I currently just finished my CNA class, but I have been working as a caregiver for over a year through agencies and by word of mouth. I originally took the class as a perquisite for nursing school, but the longer I work the more interested I have become in this rewarding career. Besides going to school and working as a caregiver I also compete in track and field in the spring.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
