I am an energetic, reliable and compassionate registered nurse who is devoted to caring for others. I have 6 years of nursing experience; 4 years as a LPN and 2 years as a RN. I acquired my experience in a fast-paced hospital setting on a medical surgical floor and I am now avid in shifting my nursing practice to a private duty care giver. My interest in nursing began as a young girl after a personal family experience with a close loved one. Through my high school years, I was given the opportunity to explore the health care field more in depth by shadowing various jobs. I found nursing to be the most appealing because of its diversity and constant advances in medical trends that give plenty of opportunities to build a strong foundation of nursing skills and wide range of experiences. Through dedication and the use of medical advances, my medical expertise and skill sets, I work diligently to provide safe compassionate quality care. I have a strong passion for caring for others and take pride in what I do. I enjoy building trusting relationships with clients and their families and believe communication is the key ingredient. Other traits and experiences include: * Establishes short and long term goals with clients and families. * Proficient in assessments, planning, implementation and evaluation. * 6 years of experience in geriatrics, cardiac and comfort/palliative care. * Well organized and team player with collaborative health care team members. * Ambition to learn new medical advances and experience new things. My current availability would be Monday through Friday after 4:30pm. 1 day a week twice a month I am committed to working a short shift from 8-9:30pm, but I do have a month in advance notice. Thank you for taking the time and your consideration in reviewing my profile. I would be happy to answer any questions or provide any additional information needed. Thank you!

The one thing that I have learned over time and has become the most important lesson in my life is that our sole purpose is to help others. We are all connected in one way or another. Having a connection from my heart to another is the best way to care for someone. My life has given me lots of loving opportunities to grow and find that caring for others is a true passion of mine. Life is like a fine painting we all have details in our lives that one can't handled alone. When that time arrives and the need to ask for a helping hand for those things we can not handle on our own that where I enjoy stepping in and helping others. My personality traits give me the ability to be very sensitive and gentle to others. I have been given the gift of being and empathy and feeling other people's emotions very deeply. This allows me to be very intune with other people. I enjoy sharing and learning from others. I work very hard at fullfilling all my commitments and duties to my best ability. I am very straight forward don't like to waist others time. Even tho I'm straight forward I do make it a point to always come across loving and respectful because we are all connected by our actions. This is why I believe I am well suited for caregiving. The reason I started care giving is because my grand father had a stroke. It broke my heart when people would not give the quality of care he deserved but only thought of him as a burden. What I enjoy the most about caregiving is when I know that the care and love I am providing is felt with great graditude by my client and they have a smile that says it all. The greatest achievement in my life would be assisting my ex in saving another person life.
