As a very young person, I realized the need and honor of being a caregiver. I suppose that is why I chose to peruse a practical nursing career. Although, after I received my licence, I did not practice professionally; my education did come handy as my husband and I raised and cared for our two daughters and later when I helped care for my paraplegic uncle (a WWII veteran), my father (also a veteran) and most recently (for the last 6 years) my mother, until her passing in 2014. I suppose my greatest accomplishments are surrounded in the caregiving of others. With my expieriance and skills I feel that I can provide exceptional care for a family in need.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
