As a child I've always wanted to be a nurse. I enjoyed growing up looking after the smaller children in my family. The older I got, I had to help take care of my grandparents when they became ill. I feel that if you're in the medical field you should always treat people the way you would want to be treated. My last job consisted of me taking care of people with mental and physical disabilities. It really humbles me and warms my heart to be able to brighten someone's day and make them feel better. Getting my CNA certificate has helped me move one step closer to becoming an RN. I really enjoy meeting new people.
