About Maria

Well, I have always felt a special connection with people, and that is why I decided to pursue a career in nursing. I have always been amazed with the human body, and everything it entails. I love that my career demands me to be compassionate with people, and loving, which I feel is one key element to be a nurse. What I enjoy most about being a caregiver is that I can provide people with quality of time; sometimes people just need a hug, or someone to talk to, to make their day better. A personal achievement I am proud of is when I had to perform CPR on a resident, and fortunately, he recovered from the heart attack. I feel like nursing is what I always wanted to do, and I am glad I can say that I love what I do.

Experience & Education

Nursing aide

Jul 2016 - Dec 2017
Norfolk veterans home
I have been a Certified Nursing Assistant since 2016 when I first started working at the veteran's home in Nebraska. I am seeking a bachelor's in Nursing, and I felt that working in a nursing home was a great way to start getting experience. I helped the elderly with their ADL's, we spent some quality of time together listening to music, playing bingo, doing puzzles, and some other things. Sometimes, I was assigned to give out the medication to each resident, so I was also aware of their medical condition. I have, since then, worked in 4 different nursing homes, because I feel like I have a special connection with the elderly, and really enjoy taking care of them.
