Experience, Skills, Specialized Training, Licenses, or Certifications:
I worked as a nurse assistant (CNA)while I was in nursing school. I believe this helped to prepare me for a career in the nursing field. As a nurse assistant I was able to have direct patient care, work along side of nurses, and I had to deal with some of the stress that is involved in the medical field, such as taking care of the needs of mutiple patients and their needs at the same time. I an a licenced registered nurse.
