Do you enjoy helping others? Can you picture yourself in an honorable profession like nursing? Becoming a certified nurses aide (CNA) is a great place to start!
Certified nurses aides, also called certified nursing assistants, provide basic care for patients in hospitals or other health care facilities, like nursing homes or long-term care homes. CNA’s are often the main caregivers who help the patients with their everyday needs, from eating and bathing to getting dressed or taking a walk in the hall.
