Greetings all, I became a licensed Geriatric Nurse Assistant, Homecare Aide as well as Alzheimer's & Dementia care assistant because I simply love to help people become their best as possible. I believe that when you care for people, God smiles on those who are servants of the Lord and Blesses those who genuinely care about the well-being of people of all nationalities and race. I am a Multi-Racial GNA who is currently in nursing school and appreciate working with the physically disabled, Geriatric's, Long-Term care, Home care, and people with special needs. I am licensed and well experienced for more t han 10 years working within hospital ICU, ER, Cardiology and Inpatient settings with both Acute and Chronic situations of health. I am reliable, efficient, kind, respectful and diligent in my career. Thank you for reading my little summary. ... more
