Hello, My name is Jamaica- yes like the country! I am currently in school finishing up my Pre-Nursing. I have one more semester until I can apply for the Nursing Program so I'm very excited about that. I am currently per-diem at work because of school. I need a more flexible work hours which is why I applied at Carelinx. I grew up in a health care profession family. My mother as well as my three older siblings are all nurses so I'll be the last one left. I've always worked in a medical field. I started as a CNA at a Home Care facility, to a skilled Nursing facility to Kaiser Permanente hospital in Seattle. I love working in the health care field I have an opportunity to grow and challenge myself. I know I am a good fit as a CNA because of my outgoing personality, many say I am very funny and a good listener. I take and handle stress well. It is a very rewarding job knowing I made an impact in peoples lives. The most simple things can make a big difference from just having a conversation with someone to assisting them with personal care I know I've impacted someones lives. ... more
