Certified Nurse Assistant


CNAs are compassionate people who love helping and supporting their patients through difficult and sometimes painful procedures. CNAs must be team players, serving as liaisons between other medical professionals and their patients. This often involves recording and conveying important information concerning the condition of those under their care.

CNAs are found in nearly every healthcare field, serving in hospitals, long-term care facilities, rehabilitation centers, and hospices. They help patients with daily activities, maintaining patient hygiene and serving a vital role in the healthcare team.

Once you have completed the CNA training program, you will be prepared to take the certification exam and then be certified by the State of California Department of Public Health after meeting specific requirements.

Certified Nurse Assistants are a very important part of the healthcare industry. They provide basic care for patients in hospitals, nursing care facilities, rehabilitation centers, home healthcare facilities, continuing care retirement communities, assisted living facilities for the elderly, and long-term care facilities, and nursing homes.

CNAs are usually physically active and may need to help lift or move patients, bathe them, dress them, or even feed them.
