Hello, My name is Erin and I am a certified physician assistant. Prior to PA school, I was a CNA for almost seven years. 6 out of the 7 years were in various assisted living settings- at a nursing home, rehabilitation center, and a memory care unit. My seventh year I worked on a trauma unit in Denver, CO. I loved all of these experiences- so much so that I have been applying to palliative care positions and hospitalist positions now as a PA-C.
