    I have been a CNA for almost 20 years and have worked, with home care agencies, nursing facilities, group homes and presently at a hospital. I love being a CNA and knowing that where ever I live I will always have a job. If you love working with people and caring for them, this is a good job for you. And of course it can be hard at times but the feeling of helping someone gets better after being ill or just making their last days peaceful is worth it. And it doesn’t require a lot of schooling so you will be soon working. Good luck to all who are thinking about taking this career.
