To become a certified nursing assistant (CNA), you will have to have nursing assistant training as you are a vital part of the daily operations at hospitals and nursing facilities. As you help aid those who are unable to care for themselves, it’s inevitable that you must possess compassionate traits and deep communication skills.
As a CNA, you’ll work very closely with patients and are responsible for their basic care and needs. This may include bathing, grooming, assisting nurses with equipment, and checking patients’ vital signs. You would also be responsible for providing patients with emotional support as enduring their treatment may be rather stressful for them. Many nursing assistants pursue careers in hospitals, nursing care facilities, and community care facilities for the elderly.
