Nurses are in high demand, but they have high stress jobs filled with countless duties. Patient care associates help to relieve the burden. A patient care associate assists the nursing staff by taking over routine patient care.
Patient care associates provide basic care to patients. This includes admitting them, taking vitals, bathing, assisting with feeding, and collecting lab specimens as needed. They are also accessible to the patient and patient’s family to answer questions and supply information.
A high school diploma is the only required education for patient care associate employment; however, many schools offer associate degrees in related fields, which can be advantageous for prospective job seekers. CRN certification is another desired quality, but often not a requirement, as much of the training is done on the job.
