Hi there! My name is James and I became a CNA after attending the accredited program at South Seattle College in 2014. I get joy and a sense of fulfillment when working with people and helping them to accomplish their goals. Since becoming a CNA, I have continued with school and I have completed my Associates of Science. While working, I have obtained Certifications for Dementia Care and Nurse Deligation. Before becoming a CNA, I was a Commercial Diver that traveled all over. I have been to most of the Americas and a little bit of Europe. I have a story for just about every conversation! I find that older folks have some really interesting things to share, if one is willing to listen a bit. Earlier in life I was a Calvaryman in the US Army. I was able then to become a Combat Life Saver. That was my introduction to healthcare and I am grateful for the experience. ... more
