CNA

Certified Nursing Assistance 

What is CNA?

A certified nursing assistant, or CNA, helps patients with activities of daily living and other healthcare needs under the direct supervision of a Registered Nurse (RN) or Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN). CNA’s are also commonly referred to as a Nursing Assistant, Patient Care Assistant (PCA), or a Nurse’s Aid. Some individuals will use their knowledge as a CNA to bridge the gap to further their career and become an LPN or RN. Interestingly, a large number of CNAs are already in a nursing school program and use this career as a chance to learn more about the healthcare world and gain additional real-world application and knowledge. Others become a CNA in order to determine if they want to continue to the next step in their healthcare journey.

Responsibilities

Certified Nursing Assistants commonly work under the supervision of a Registered Nurse or other medical professional. On any given day, a Certified Nursing Assistant will be responsible for:
1)Attending to the needs of multiple patients
2)Aiding patients with routine tasks, including eating, bathing, dressing and exercise
3)Observing and recording patient conditions and vital signs
4)Monitoring patient food and liquid intake
5)Updating care team on changes in patient condition
6)As Certified Nursing Assistants gain experience and training, they may take on additional responsibilities, including dispensing medicine.

Where do CNA works?

CNAs work in various healthcare settings, including general and specialty hospitals, nursing homes, assisted living establishments, and rehabilitation facilities. In some cases, their non-routine duties may be somewhat dependent on where they work.
The patient populations CNAs work with can also vary along with work setting. CNAs in hospitals might work in wards with specific age groups, such as infants or young children. They may work in specialty hospitals with cancer patients or patients with other specific health conditions. CNAs who work in nursing homes deal with elderly patients, while those who work in rehabilitation facilities may interface with patients of all ages. And those who work in memory care facilities have the challenge of working with patients who have Alzheimer’s disease or dementia.
All this means that as a CNA, you will have options. You can work in environments and with populations that you are interested in and most comfortable with.
