Hospice CNA: Not Just a Title to Me
By Celeste M. Billups CHPNA, CNA, CMA
Being a Hospice CNA is so much more than a title to me. I was given another chance at life so my calling has now turned into my passion. I was promoted to CNA Trainer at my place of employment. I love sharing knowledge and learning from other CNA’s. I like to train “outside of the box” and not just textbook training. I want my patients to always know that even though you are a Hospice patient, I am not here to help you die; I’m here to help you live.
