Train to be a CNA
Certified Nursing Assistants (CNA) provide individualized attention to
patients and residents and are the primary caregivers in meeting the day-to-day
needs of patients.
They play a significant role in relaying information about the condition
of patients to other members of the healthcare team since they are the
one having constant contact with patients. CNAs responsibilities include
maintaining patient hygiene, supporting doctors and nurses in medical
procedures and technical treatments, patient charting, and explaining
care instructions to patients.
A certified nursing assistant, or CNA, helps patients or clients with healthcare
needs under the supervision of a Registered Nurse (RN) or a Licensed Practical
Nurse (LPN). Also known as a Nursing Assistant (NA) a Patient Care Assistant
(PCA) or a State Tested Nurse Aid (STNA), the individual who carries this
title needs a strong work ethic and ability.
