About Jessica

Hi there! I am seeking a full-time or part-time opportunity as caregiver/CNA for the elderly. I prefer to work shifts that are 6-12 hrs long. I am a certified nurse assistant and a certified phlebotomist. I have also completed clinical rotations as a student nurse. I am CPR/AED certified and have years of experience taking care of people of all ages. Before attending college, I worked as a CNA for a home-agency. I enjoy working with the elderly and providing companionship, as well as helping with daily living activities. I am experienced with dressing, bathing, medication reminders, diagnostic testing (diabetes), medical assessment and taking vital signs etc. I also help with light cleaning, cooking and providing transportation (within 10 miles). I do have a professional resume that I can send you via email. If interested, I would love to chat with you. Thank you! My email is jessicacolon04@gmail.com and phone is 6306968495. Please email, call, or text me if interested.

    I grew up watching my parents taking care of my grand parents , I guess it comes naturally to me doing the same . Taking care of other gives you that inner satisfaction which is hard to find in other work settings. I'm proud to be a Nurse . I'm registered nurse from a foreign country working as certified nursing assistant with extensive experience working with seniors with different healthcare needs and trained to work with a lot of diverse cultures and settings. http://www.thequint.com/2015/aprhttp://www.thequint.com/2015/apr/07/female-gender-mutilation-indias-well-kept-secret/07/female-gender-mutilation-indias-well-kept-secret

    I have always been an empathetic person. I receive a great amount of gratification by helping people. I feel I can make a difference in an individuals life with a helping hand or just take the time to listen to the wants and needs of others. I consider myself a handy woman that includes making dinners to fixing the hinge on the door! A personal achievement or accomplishment would be to have raised to beautiful boys and put them through college as a single parent. My husband passed away at a very young age and I believe that inner strength and positive attitude is your most powerful asset in life.
