As a certified nursing assistant, you will be on the front lines of patient care.
If you enjoy caring for people who are sick or unable to care for themselves, than
a career as a certified nursing assistant may be right for you. Your compassion and
skill in patient care will help minimize the stress of patients and provide much needed
support for registered RN’s. For many, CNA is the first step to becoming an RN.
Certified nursing assistants (CNAs), also known as nurses' aides, orderlies, patient
care technicians, and home health aides, work under the supervision of a nurse to
provide assistance to patients with daily living tasks.
As a CNA you will work closely with patients serving their basic care needs such as
bathing, grooming and feeding them, assisting nurses with medical equipment, and checking
patient vital signs. You will also provide patients with important social and emotional
support and report vital information on patient conditions to nurses.
