I started out as a CNA back in 1996 I worked in geriactrics for about 5 years, Pych for 1 year, stroke brain injury rehabe hospital 5 years. Then in 2008 I moved out of state and could'nt use my CNA licence. And for the first time in 12 years I had to change my career fields. I was a very devastated and even though I was a bit burned out I secretly missed the nursing field. I had allways wanted to be an RN, but being a single mom with 3 boys it was hard to go back to school and work.
So, in 2008 I had no choice but to start looking for another job. I ended up landing a job as a hotel maid at one of the largest hotels in Vegas, I worked their for only 6 months. That job paid really well but I take my hat of to those people, cause that work was hard as heck. I thought CNA work was hard, but cleaning 16 rooms (aint no joke) :sstrs:.
I then got a job at a very large Payday loan company as a loan clerk. I've done this for almost three years now. This year I finally decided I am going back to school for my RN and CNA I am predicted to gradurate with my Associates in Nursing in 2015 at the age of 38. My sons are 5, 12, and 17 and I cant WAIT!!!! :yeah:This has been a long journey for me but I truly feel I will succeed and this is just the next chapter of my life.
