[block]0[/block]is a website dedicated to helping people learn all they need to know about becoming a Certified Nursing Assistant as well as ways to improve the care and guidance you can provide to patients and doctors while working.
It is my aim to provide as much help as possible to future Nurses as they are the ones that run our healthcare system. Anyone with a specific question can use the comment section after each blog post to send it to me and I will do my best to answer them swiftly.

Nicolle Wagner RN, BSN, RAC-CT, C-NE
I recently took the position of Director of Nursing at Mohawk Valley Health Care Center. I began my nursing career in 1996 as a certified nursing assistant at a small nursing home in Palatine Bridge. I felt such a passion for learning and a strong desire to provide skilled care for the residents I had grown to love, that I decided to continue my education. I received my LPN diploma from HFM BOCES in 2000, my RN license after completing my associate’s degree at FMCC in 2005, and my bachelor’s degree in nursing from NAU in 2009. I have been a member of AANAC since 2008 and received my Nurse Executive certificate from them in 2009.
