Hi, my name is Maria Villanueva. I am a former LPN Keiser Career College
graduate. I have been working during the last 14 months in an assisted
living facility in New Port Richey.
During this time, I have enjoyed every minute of my work, since the
interaction with the residents and families, until the team work of
the wellness department.
The facility where I perform my job is huge, and I have to work not
only with the AL residents, but also with the residents in the Memory
Care Unit. I communicate daily with resident's families, which ask questions
about their love ones by phone or in person; I communicate with health
providers when a resident's change condition needs to be reported.
I supervise the wellness department. Under my supervision are ten Med-Techs
providing primary care to our residents. I am responsible for the assignment
of the staff to every unit.
I conduct and document a thorough assessment of each resident's medical
status upon admission and throughout the resident's course of treatment.
I perform daily the care of residents that are diabetic, checking their
blood sugar and providing the treatments ordered by their doctors.
One aspect of my job that I consider very important, and I think I have
developed during these months is time management skills. Without this
skill the day can be chaotic.
Prior to being a nurse, I worked as a CNA during five years for a home
health agency, what it gave me a lot of experienced with the elderly
I consider myself a very professional, responsible, reliable person,
and I am always on-time on my job. I am eager to learn new skills and
to grow as a nurse in my career in nursing.
look forward to hearing from you and wish you a great day ahead.
