I feel worthwhile and that I am making a difference.Before I started college I worked in daycare.I received a lot of joy helping the children to overcome obstacles. I graduated from the University of Texas and received my BSN. I worked at St. Lukes in the ICU's. I took care of clients with all kinds of problems.I also worked on the transplant unit at ST. Luke's. I transferred to M,D. Anderson Hospital where I was the evening charge nurse. Our clients had a variety of cancers.After 18 months I transferred to a private oncology office. I dealt with newly diagnosed patients.I taught them about their disease, I mixed and administered chemotherapy. The doctors I worked for were also hematologist. We treated a number of AIDS patients.I worked extensively with the families.When the patients disease was no longer treatable I Placed them on Hospice.My children were young and I decided to stay home with them. I eventually went back to school and became a Texas Certified teacher. I was certified to teach grades 4-8th and special education. I taught in public schools and started tutoring privately. I then started to take care of clients that needed my help physically.
As a registered nurse working in the ICU hospital setting I provide nursing care to help heal those in need. This care involves providing physical care, mental care and emotional care. What many people do not know is that the latter two affect someone's health as much as their physical health does. I believe I would be a good caregiver because I love to serve others and better the lives of others in caring for all three aspects of a person's health.
