Hi, my name is Mai. I live in San Jose, CA and I am a registered, practical nurse from Canada with more than 3 years of caregiving.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because it's a path close to my scope of practice in Canada. I chose being here as a permanent resident, and I'm starting to rewrite my license again. So being a caregiver will be my job from now until I get the license and come back to the field as a registered, practical nurse.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
I have many cases that I will never forget. But one of the cases have to be my first case when I was starting my career as a practical nurse. He has dementia and the quality of his life declined day after day because of a lot of falls, and he ended up on our hospital and stayed in there.
