Certified Nursing Assistant

Certified Nursing Assistant

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). Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs) provide intimate, hands-on healthcare to patients in medical settings, helping with bathing, dressing and the basic activities of life. A day in the life of a CNA might also include: Turning or repositioning bedridden patients in long term care facilities, measuring patient vital signs, administering medications or treatments, as directed by a physician or nurse; clean and sanitize patient rooms, bathrooms, examination rooms, or other patient areas; document or otherwise report observations of patient behavior, complaints, or physical symptoms to nurses and apply clean dressings, slings, stockings, or support bandages, under direction of nurse or physician.
