I became a care giver because I enjoy helping others to maintain a quality of life. There's nothing like the feeling you get at the end of the day after knowing that you did something to help contribute to making someone's day. I have been a certified nursing assistant for 12 1/2 years and I have enjoyed everyone of those years but I wanted to get a degree in health care administration so I went back to school, I will be graduating with an Associate's degree in June 2015. I feel that this degree will not only add to the experience that I already have in the health field but also allow me to help people in more ways than just direct care.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
