First Job Series: Dr. Kevin Dishman
Certified Nurses Aide | Pin Oaks Nursing Home
Why this job?
I was interested in caring for people. It was truly a great experience being able to work in an actual [health] care facility providing hands-on-care for patients.
Despite the many overwhelming challenges that come with the job, the dedication and constant care that the staff nurses provided for their patients is something I will never forget.
We spend so much time trying to obtain everything and, unfortunately, we lose sight of the fact that we already possess it. If I have learned anything, it’s that the rewards of this profession are best measured by the good we do. I feel so grateful to have the opportunity to take part in that every day, for it is far greater than any monetary compensation I receive.
Work hard, work honestly and give your best effort at all times.
