I have over 30 years experience in the practice of both General Nursing and Ophthalmic Nursing having being a Registered Nurse in my country, Nigeria. I'm a self disciplined person having served in the Nigerian Air Force for 30 years with remarkable records. The military service offered me great opportunities to have worked both at home and abroad which enabled me interacted with different people and also appreciated their cultures. That was a valuable experience too as healthcare cannot be successfully and efficiently carried out without caregivers respecting the various cultures of clients. My training and certification in Nursing Aide Assistance further equipped me with necessary skills as a Direct Caregiver. I have been motivated to continue as a caregiver in view of my experience in nursing care practice as mentioned more so that both nursing and caregiving are centered on the patient's healthcare which is aimed at patient or client early recovery back to normal rhythm of life roles. I believe that both my Nursing experience and direct caregiving experience predicated on self discipline are my strong strengths that make me a great caregiver. My professional contributions to client recovery to the extent of them been able to carry out activities of daily living with little or no assistance make me happy and proud for being an effective caregiver.
Compassion, although it comes naturally, I have continued to cultivate it in my personal and spiritual life. Nothing makes me happier than to know I have in some way made the life of others, more comfortable, bearable, dignified. My first observation of healthcare was in the family setting observing, Mother, and Aunties attend to the needs of those family members who were advanced in age, disabled or in distress just seemed like a natural thing to do. At the age of 14, I volunteered as a "Candystriper." even though I was personally terrified of blood, needles, and that medicinal hospital smell. I love using my education and experience to help clients and their families through difficult times. My proudest moment was successfully completing my Nurses diploma in 1986, graduating from Mercy Hospital School of Nursing, on the Dean's list.
I have 4+ years of proven experience effectively and efficiently managing patients care. I am an extremely organized, calm, and patient professional with excellent healthcare skills. I have a passion for providing quality care to patients, and the necessary leadership skills to inspire other staff members to strive to provide above standard levels of service. In my present role as registered nurse at Northern Virginia mental Health Institute, I am tasked with evaluating the medical conditions of patients daily and developing and directing a rotational system to manage the care of patients and otherwise coordinate workforce management. During this time, I've been recognized as a dedicated, ambitious, and reliable person who has the ability to work without supervision. In addition, my four years of experience as a CNA at Westmister lake Ridge helped me realize and implement clinical duties I learned during the course of my education. While employed there, I was commended for proficiently handling difficult situations with patients and their family members. I feel confident that my experience will be extremely beneficial to you. I am ready to put my skills to work and would love to bring my passion as a care giver to your home.

OBJECTIVE I am an experienced R.N. of many years. A positive encouraging person. I enjoy my work as a Nurse and I like to give my best of care to those who need it most. I have my clients well being at heart, and their advocate all my life. As a young Certificated Midwife, who delivered thousands of babies, in a remote village in Ghana years ago, I realized how I loved being in the Health field. I have been in the Nursing field for a long time, and delivering top-notch quality services to my clients is classic to me. I proficiently use my experienced skills beyond the call of my duties, to assist other staff members who needed a touch of training to enhance their skills for the betterment of client care. I like to share what I know with others, and learn from them too. I am proud of always adhering to the highest quality of client care to the best of my ability. Titles do not take care to any person. The power and the love of God is what has carried me this far to love my clients and their families while I do my job. One of my reasons to loving what I do is this; I like to see my client happy, and well cared for. I do not like sloppy work. I stand up for what is right. I am proud in a humble sense, that as someone who came from a poor background, I held on to my vision with prayers by becoming an R.N. Truly God's Grace brought me to that point. Thanks for asking me to do this. I am Lawrencia Amo-Gottfried, R.N.
I was a nurse in the Philippines and my experience as a caregiver began with taking care of my diabetic aunt. After graduation I took care of several patients in their private homes. As a caregiver I have had the chance to understand the needs of families. I am always present and able to provide around-the-clock care. My main responsibility as a caregiver is to provide assistance with the medical, personal, and emotional needs of the patient. I am skilled at administering medicine according to doctors' orders or simply reminding patients to take their medications. I also assist with activities of daily living - I can help with bathing, grooming, dressing, mobility, exercising, meal planning, nutrition tracking, transferring from bed to wheelchair, and keeping company. I can also do light housekeeping, prepare meals, and provide emotional care to the family members. Caregivers prevent family members from feeling burnt out. As a caregiver I feel that I have contributed a lot by improving the health conditions of my patients. I find nothing more rewarding than caring for them.
