Susanne’s Bio

In Europe the job description of an RN is different than in the US. We not only have the same education, knowledge, skills and responsibilities as RNs here, but also do the work of a CNA. After completing my nursing training which also included rotations in HHC and a residential setting with geriatric, DD and psychiatric population I worked mainly in LTC facilities. In the first one I was solely responsible for the entire floor of 20 plus residents w/ various care needs from a simple incontinence care of otherwise fully independent individuals to full care of end stage MS with daily mobilization and physical therapy. The other was similar as far as the care needs were concererned, but the physical setting was different. It was a building with individual apartments and a main floor with patient rooms, a kitchen and dining room  and a physical therapy room. The work was plenty and hard and there was never enough time so much so that we would spend the entire shift not even being able to drink a glass of water and doing our paperwork after hours without pay, but I loved it and miss it very much. I am a care taker with all my heart and honestly believe it is my calling. Ever since my daughter has outgrown the need of constant care and supervision i have been miserable and can't wait to do what I'm meant to do.
 
I've checked the "references only available upon request" b/c it was the only way I could submit my profile but I have never worked for any US employer and I don't think my european employers would remember specifics or even me after such a long time, even if you could speak the language and communicate with them.
