Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs) perform a variety of tasks. Essentially, their job is to assist nurses. This can include providing basic nursing care, monitoring vitals and transporting patients. More frequently, however, CNAs help patients to accomplish daily tasks, including bathing, dressing, feeding and grooming.
Although CNAs work in a variety of facilities, the nature of the job leads many to work in long term care. Long term care facilities specialize in taking care of senior patients who cannot take care of themselves. Usually, patients are in the facility for the remainder of their lives, and those who work in long term care CNA jobs often develop close relationships with patients.
In order to qualify for long term care CNA jobs, candidates need to complete post-secondary education. Accredited CNA programs require between 75 and 150 credit hours. Upon completion, graduates are awarded a certificate, but must pass a competency exam to register with the state before being able to practice.
