CNA Graduation

I have graduated from my CNA course. It was highly informative and I enjoyed the challenge that it presented to me. I WOULD NOT have been able to finish this course without help from my Heavenly Father - who supplied my physical and mental energy - and my husband who took care of the house, kids, and me. I am so blessed.

What happens now? Well, I am waiting for a test date to become a state certified nursing assistant. After I get the test date, I can begin working as long as I complete/pass the state exam within 120 days of working there. There is a lady at my church who works in hospice. I am interested in speaking with her about entering that field of work.

Here are some pictures from the ceremony yesterday:

My friend, Isabel, and I. We became great friends throughout the course. She is so kind and considerate. Plus she has 2 daughters who totally hit it off with Anna and are coming to her Halloween Party next week! :D

My instructor, Nurse Carter. She was such a great teacher. I really enjoyed learning from her and getting to know her as a person.

Anna just wanted a picture, too. Why not?? Isn't she adorable?
