Medhn's Journey: From CNA to Nurse
Medhn's journey into healthcare started long before she became a nurse in 2014. As a child, she had a dream of becoming a doctor and helping children. However, life took her on a different path. She moved to the United States and worked as a certified nursing assistant (CNA) for 5-6 years before deciding to pursue nursing.
For Medhn, nursing is not just a job, it's a calling. She finds it rewarding and relaxing, and it's something she can't stay away from. She worked in psychiatric nursing for a long time but is now pursuing her goal of working in maternity. Although she accidentally ended up in psychiatric nursing, it was a valuable experience that helped her grow as a nurse.
Medhn's greatest challenge in healthcare has been working with people from different cultures. Some people judge her based on her background and the way she speaks, which can be frustrating. However, she doesn't take it personally and reminds herself that understanding comes with learning and exposure.
As a nurse, Medhn has many experiences that have stuck with her. For her, it's everyday life. She finds joy in helping patients with their daily lives and being able to communicate with them. Nursing school was not easy, especially being from a foreign country. However, she found it exciting and motivating. She worked during the night and went to school during the day, all while helping her family back home.
Medhn encourages anyone interested in pursuing a career in healthcare to go for it. She believes that it's a good job, secure, and very rewarding. She suggests trying it out as a caregiver or CNA first to see if it's the right fit. If you're sure, study hard and go forward.
Medhn is a mother of three, but she still finds time to pursue her passion for nursing. She loves that nursing provides her with income to support her family and allows her to help others. For Medhn, nursing is not just a job, it's a way of life.
