I am a retired RN with 30 years experience in ER, OR, ICU, Home Health and Hospice. I've chosen to become a caregiver because: 1. I no longer crave the excitement of nursing or the 8-12 hour shifts. 2. I miss the caregiving aspect of nursing, the comforting, the listening, the time to connect one on one. 3. My assessment skills are excellent. I am a patient instructor in regards to medication management/disease processes. 4. I understand family dynamics and relationship building during stressful situations. 5. I am open minded, non-judgmental, appreciative of all life styles. 6. I adore pets and believe that fur friends offer much in the way of unconditional love and support. 7. I enjoy people! I am an avid student of our "humanness". ... more

Work

Home Depot

Dec 2014 - Jun 2016

Wanting to reconnect with people, I continued to work as a cashier. Greeting customers in a sincere, friendly manner, making "small talk", inquiring about their current projects are all fun and exciting aspects of cashiering. I am able to build an instant rapport with customers and am genuinely curious about their plans.

Cashier

TJ Maxx

Jun 2014 - Dec 2014

Learning to operate a cash register was grand experience for the brain. While greeting customers, asking if they needed assistance and then providing that assistance, selling jewelry, stocking shelves was rewarding in that I was engaging with people in a less stressful situation than nursing and all the while helping them to feel better about their shopping experience.
