inspired you to become a C.N.A.???
My father-in-law passed away last summer & while he was in hospice, the nurses & the c.n.a.'s at the hospital were just fantastic. While he was "okay", he would go on & on about a particular c.n.a. He just thought that she was fabulous & he'd joke around that he'd have to go to the hospital again just to get a decent haircut, as the c.n.a. was, apparently, the only one who could cut his hair worth a darn. At his very, very last moments, she gave him a haircut. My mother-in-law still praises this c.n.a. each & every time I mention my own desire to become one. This girl probably goes to work each & every day & just is really great at her job. Little does she know, that the way she treated & cared for my father-in-law during each of his hospital visits & his final days - well, she was a huge influence in my life. The nurses there were wonderful. I'd really like to get into hospice care, myself, one day. Funny thing. I always thought I'd want to help deliver babies... =)
