1. I come from a long line of caregivers. My father's a doctor, my aunt is a nurse, my uncle is a doctor and I always wanted to become a nurse. I went to nursing school for four years to become one because I've always been a caring person just like the rest of the family. 2. The special relationship I develop with my clients and being able to help someone who needs me. 3. Going to college for my Bachelor of Science in Nursing. 4. I've been in healthcare all my life. I worked for an emergency department for 2 years I worked for Visiting Nurse Association of Louisville for 2 years, and I worked for priva te physicians for 9 years. When I wasn't working I was going to school or raising my babies. I have had much experience with disabled clients. When I worked for Visiting Nurse Association I had homebound clients that needed one on one personal care and activities of daily living care 365 days a year. In addition, I provided respite care for their loved ones. Most of my home bound clients were in chronic pain. I tried to imagine having to be dependent and trustworthy of someone outside of family. You must put yourself in someone else's shoes. How would I want to be treated if it were me? That's how I take care of my clients. ... more

I had to input all of the clients' data for their permanent records in our system. I was a personal assistant to six emergency department physicians.
