Its a rewarding feeling actually ,I love the thank you's you get when you have brighten some one day. I like the doubt i see on people faces when you walk in the door, and the person think oh this just another worker and at the in the day they mind has been changed because all health workers are not alike. I tell my people i work with its not just about the money, its about the heart the dependecy. I really don't have a personal achievement , I don't praise my self of my accomplishments, you know you have done a good job and have uplifted a family when they have praised you for caring. I have been a c.n.a since 2007. I also work with the Developmental Disable and the Mental disability, been doing this since 2004. I love learning new things, new areas of care or and just being there. I am a single mom of 2, I went to college for medical billing and coding, graduated with a 4.0 I use too work in the field of medical billing but the company folded. So as you can see my history is around health care. ... more
