Senior at Grand Valley State University majoring in Nursing. I am a licensed CNA and have been working as an aide for over two and a half years. Throughout my time as an aide, I have learned that in order to provide the highest quality of care to each resident, it is critical to get to know each resident and their family on a personal level.
