I have been a caregiver for over 4 years and got my CNA license in 2013. Being a caregiver/CNA gives me pride because I enjoy helping people and giving them the means to continue to living life with a little more ease because I am there as support. I had found myself a single mom and in need of a career and I thought what better than to become a CNA since I am people oriented, get along great with everyone and really enjoy helping others. I achieved my goal and couldn't be happier. I am the type of person who tries to see the good and the positive in everything and that is something I feel makes others comfortable with me.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
