My name is Robinson Candilosa Jr., I’ve been a Certified Nursing Assistant for 9 years and counting. I finished my CNA class at MCC. Patient care is my passion back then in my country where I grew up in the islands of the Philippines. Prior to migrating in the land of great opportunities, I met my wife in the Middle East where I worked for 8 years. My wife, an RN has a big influence in my nursing career of my dreams. I do believed that fulfillment comes from a well-balanced work and family life.
As a CNA, I am dedicated to patient service and learned to love my job, not to mention the joy that comes from compliments and awards from the patients that I care, colleague and from the management. I joined Wassaja Memorial Health Center with the conviction to serve in a community setting.
In my free time, I find myself indulged to cooking. When time permits the whole family travels to discover the secrets of Arizona and catch its beauty in photography.
