I am a 22 year-old, Certified Nursing Assistant looking to help, love and care for others who cannot to do so, entirely, on their own. Aside from my outgoing and selfless personality, I am a very hardworking, honest and trustworthy individual trying to pursue a career as a Registered Nurse. To say the very least, I love people! I enjoy talking with and learning about others, their history and experience as a human being. Nonetheless, I take great pride in helping others to reach their full potential despite the presence of any self-benefit or lack there of.
Since the moment my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer, I was certain that I would work in the medical field. At the age of 10 when I learned about my mom's diagnosis, both my mind and body were taken over by this burning passion to enter the field of oncology. However, I discovered through personal experience that the nurses, who cared for my mom day in and day out, were really the people who made the biggest impression and ultimately, made all the difference. Had it not been for those considerate, loving and beautiful souls who cared for her, my mom's battle against cancer may have been MUCH more heart wrenching and devastating to our family. Among other things, their comfort and support motivated my mother to keep pushing even on her worst, most brutal days. With that, It would be an honor and my absolute dream come true to have the opportunity to provide such sincere love and generosity to other people, with hopes of making the same difference that those nurses once did. I became a caregiver to provide myself with a foundation to be a nurse. I achieved my CNA and nursing certificate in psychiatric nursing specialty, with pharmacology. I went on to care for HIV /Aids patients and hospice. I have a wonderful calming and caring effect on people and have worked many outstanding cases.
I was planning to get my PhD in psychology for psychologist, but I stuck with nursing as I loved it very much.
I have worked from NY to San Diego and have been with one company for 20+ years.
I went back to school for my BA in education, as I teach special education as well. I am always updating my psychiatric background and love learning.
I have many wonderful success stories, including my patient who I was with for 4 years, as his private nurse, care manager and trainer for his caregivers. I work well independently and have great skills.
I love to write and my English/Education background has helped me get published. I still write and plan to publish more work.
I presently am a music reviewer and article writer for different publications.
I am very diversified in skills, education and interests, but I am above all a people person who is dependable, professional, well skilled and well liked. Hello! My name is Robin and I have been care-giving in Colorado for 5 years, And I have recently moved to Jacksonville NC! I have worked in multiple companies, and done private care as well! I knew care-giving was my passion when I was 18 and I met my first client, her name was Gloria and we quickly became close friends! Along my care-giving journey I have had many clients that became close to my heart and taught me so much about life, compassion, and how to be a better caregiver! I've worked closely with clients who have dementia, and I consider that to be a strong point for me, as I have seen the disease in all stages, I know what to look out for, and in general, how to comfort somebody who is very scared and confused. A few more strong points for me would include: compassion, cleanliness, time management skills, honesty, and a true love and passion when it comes to caring for people. Whats I enjoy most about being a caregiver is the rewarding feeling and sense of accomplishment I get, knowing I have brightened somebody's day, and improved their life!
