Anastacio - Registered Nurse (Div 1) - Narre Warren VIC 3805, Australia

Maricar Anastacio

Narre Warren VIC 3805, Australia


Currently, I am working as a PCA and a Registered (Div 1) Nurse for a nursing agency. I have worked in several various hospitals and aged care facilities in Melbourne.
• I am committed to strong work ethics, and I enjoy working in a team supporting environment by paying respect, being friendly, reliable and willing to extend help to anyone who may need my assistance. I am open for feedback, new ideas and healthy, positive criticisms which will ultimately benefit the welfare of the patients.
• I am able to work independently and proactively as a part of the team. I use my clinical decision-making ability in working autonomously and collaborating with other health providers directly responsible for the care of my patients. I demonstrated the skill throughout my clinical practice as I worked closely with patients’ families and multi-disciplinary health professionals whilst protecting patient’s privacy and confidentiality of information.
• I enjoy leading and supporting care workers in improving their clinical and behavioral management skills. I have shown that attitude when I have been assigned as a nurse-in-charge or team leader. I make sure that tasks are delegated appropriately considering the level of care necessary for each patient.
• I have superior communication and problem-solving skills. I use various communication techniques in assessing the patients’ conditions, identifying their needs and managing their concerns. I also promote health education to my patients.
