Nursing is a calling, God placed it in my heart.I nurse as if I'm doing it unto the Lord I absolutely LOVE what I do & I'm so blessed through it.I've been voted the best nurse at my facility by my patients.I learn my patients, their individual needs, specific likes/dislikes and personality. I've been a nurse sine 2002 I am & will always be my patient's advocate.Insisting & ensuring they get the highest quality care.I'm very skilled, kind, patient, compassionate, giving & caring. My desire is to touch lives & improve the quality of life for those needing nursing care.I graduated nursing school with a 4.0, finished all but 7 months of RN school & then life happened & financially wasn't able to finish. Now unfortunately many of my classes have expired, but I'm ok with that lvn/rn just long as I'm nursing. I'm a 34yo mother to the BEST 16yo in the WORLD & very happily married woman.I'm originally from GA & I've got the southern drawl to prove it.I love animals of all kinds & believe they're a gift from God.

Pay is negotiable Hello my name is Helena and I would like to tell you a little bit about myself I'm a mother of 3, grandmother of 22 and a great-grandmother of 2, at the young age of 31 my mother had a stroke, she lived in Chattanooga Tennessee at the time and I went and got my mother, move her in with me and my family and took care of her that's when I gained the love of being a caretaker, providing care to those who can't take care of themselves became a passion however at that time I could not make that a full-time obligation, now that my children are grown and I'm older I can dedicate most of my time on what I really like to do, helping people enjoy the quality of life that they deserve.
I'm a people person, I'm very empathetic, loving, kind, compassionate, an excellent companion and very attentive, I believe in your senior years those are your best years and you should be spoiled and taken care of with dignity and respect after all you've earned it, it's your right and it's our responsibility to provide just that.
I also know that there are times when age isn't a factor, you may have had an injury, may have a medical disorder and you need someone to be there to make sure that everything is okay, it helps with the healing process, people need people, people need people who care and I'm that person I am a great care giver beacause , I have worked in the medical field for30 plus years . I am loving ,compassionate,and caring. I find it very rewarding to rehab a person to the state of walking when they have become weak in their body.I have worked in a hospital for 17 years as physical therapy tech, homehealth, hospice care,rehab aide in the nursing home, worked in assistive living passing out medication ,CNA,and certificate in medication training. I am currently working with the mentally challenge. It take patient and care , and to under stand how that person feel that is sick. To sum it all up, when ever I would go on a case or fill in they would want me back instead of the regular aide.
