My name is Tanya White. I have been a CNA for 8years this coming June and I love my career. I became a CNA after seeing how my grandfather was treated during his stay at a nursing facility. The way the aides seemed to care so much for him and they hardly knew him meant a lot. The aides were patient and kind even when my grandfather wasn't so pleasant. My grandfather passed away soon after and I was enrolled in my CNA class a few days after. I love it when a patient sees how much you care and even if they were not pleasant in the beginning, they come to realize you are not there to hurt them, but help.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
