became a CNA out of high school because i liked the medical field and had planned on being a nurse;however,life got in the way and instead of being a nurse,i became a long-haul trucker for 25+years. i went back to the healthcare field when i came off the road,and wound up liking the more direct care a CNA has with residents in long term care facilities..i am proud that i can give excellent care to seniors who so richly deserve to be taken care of as if they are ALL members of my family. i have been employed in both long term care facilities(on pulmonary,long term care,and Alzheimer's floors)and assisted living/Alzheimer's assisted living facilities-i enjoy both. for me,being a CNA is my profession
