I am a Certified Nursing Assistant and Patient Care Technician with experience in a fast-paced environment handling confidential paperwork, administering medication and providing quality patient care. I am a dedicated worker that is filled with compassion for anything related to the medical field. I have over 80 hours of clinical experience working in Nursing Homes and Hospital settings. I am willing to take on new challenges and I see every possible outcome as a wonderful opportunity. I have maintained above a 3.0 my entire career as a student at Greenville Technical College. I was awarded the honor of being selected to be on the Dean's List two semesters in a row. I maintained several scholarships (ex. Life Scholarship) for my first year at Greenville Technical College. I have a certification from Greenville Technical College as a Patient Care Technician and as a Certified Nursing Assistant. I am CPR certified. I am currently pursuing my Associate's Degree in Nursing at Greenville Technical College and then I look forward to receiving my Masters in Nursing later on in the future. I have worked with an experienced nurse aide to learn procedures to be performed as a nurse aide. As a full time healthcare student I have learned to appreciate the medical field and to develop an impeccable study routine.
