I wanted to become a CNA because, I want to accomplish something important in my life. As a CNA I am making a difference in not only the lives of the patients that I help, but also their friends and families. I am helping to make many peoples lives more comfortable, and it can be a very rewarding experience. With me being a CNA is a great way for me to really test myself on my goals and to exposes myself to many members of the health care team. Going through training was hard work and being in charged with caring for sick people isn't something to be taking for granted. You have to have the will and desire to help people. You also have to have patience and to be very compassionate. You have to be committed to a physically demanding job, with little tolerance for poor work ethic. I feel what makes me a good caregiver is with the 20 years experience in the medical field, I bring an additional quality that makes me the best person for the job--and that's my passion for excellence. I am passionately committed to producing very good results. I have excellent communications skills, strong organizational skills, to be a willing team player and work well under pressure.
