My dedication to excellence makes me a great caregiver! As a skilled Licensed Practical Nurse with more than 14 years of experience, both clients and co-workers would best describe me as an LPN dedicated beyond normal expectations; with a kind reflective nature and strong moral character. I became a care giver because caring for others was a natural inclination for me. My Mother first noticed my gift of caring for others when I cared for her following a surgical procedure. After cleaning, cooking, and picking up medications she called me a natural little "Florence Nightengale." As a Christian caring for others was not only my gift it was also my passion! I find myself blessed to be able to align my passion with my gift and it result in my life work! A personal achievement I am most proud of occurred when I was working at an Alzheimer's care facility. My assignment included a unit consisting of mostly bed ridden and wheel chair confined clients. Due to the decreased level of physical movement and activity most of the clients suffered from pressure ulcers, skin tears and wounds as a result of decreased circulation. This particular unit when assessed was never given above a C- grade within the excellence in level of care scoring system. Within a 3 month time period beneath my charge this same unit received an A+ pinning within the excellence in level of care scoring system. I am most proud to be a Nurse when both my client(s) and their families are safe, well cared for and happy with my care delivery!
