What is a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA)
Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs) work under the supervision of Registered Nurses (RNs), interacting directly with patients providing basic care and assisting them with daily living activities.
CNAs serve their patients meals and help them eat as well as assist their patients in cleaning, bathing, using the restroom and getting dressed. They are also responsible for turning or repositioning bedridden patients and transferring them between beds and wheelchairs. In addition to helping with daily activities, CNAs also measure vital signs such as blood pressure and temperature and dispense medication as needed. In residential care facilities, CNAs are often the principal caregivers to their patients.
