I became a caregiver (CNA) because I truly care for others. I have an open heart for millions of resdients who seek care. In 2009 I moved to SC. I started working in a nursing facility called NHC health care as a front desk clerk and I also help in the activities department. They notice how good I was handling the front office as well as the residents during activity time. So they asked me if i was interested in becoming a CNA. The class was free and they would pay for everything. I would receive my certification within a couple of months and I would work full-time as a CNA. Of course I would work for them because I was such a great persons of interest. Long story short I took the class and I became a CNA and worked for NHC Health Care until Sept 2013. I relocated to GA and I am still a proud CNA. Since i been in this field what i like about being a CNA is i have my ups and downs on my personal life. When i take care of others they make me feel happy, love, and appreciated. I enjoy making others feel the same way I would like the same in return. I achieve 1st receiving my CNA as well as my CPR, gaining experience, certified in supervision of meds,and basic pharmacology. ... more
