How Do I Explain Myself? I am a nurse by choice. I did not get into it for money. I am a bedside nurse, never wanted to be anything more. I enjoy being the caretaker of those who are sick. I am compassionate and empathetic. I always wanted to be a teacher and that dream was fulfilled in nursing. I get to teach patients and family members about the disease process and how to live and improve their quality of life. I retired in December of 2017 and returned part time in January of 2018. I do not work enough to get to know my patients like I used to. I am not feeling the satisfaction like I should.
To Future Employers: I am trustworthy, dependable, loyal, professional, and work well without direct supervision. I can learn anything, fast. I can read and understand directions. I am able to make quick decisions appropriately. I know alot about retail and stocking. My first real job I worked at Kmart for 7 years, 1979-1985. Didn't mention it in history due to the later dates. I am looking for a night shift stocking or warehouse position. I want the opportunity to do a good job for another company. I have more years ahead of me and need a change.
