A certified nursing assistant (CNA) is an integral part of the medical team assisting with the daily care of the acute or chronically ill, and elderly (hospitals, nursing homes…).

A CNA compassionately help patients with the activities of daily living such as bathing, personal hygiene, dressing and eating while helping the person maintain as much independence as possible and contributing to their rehabilitation as needed.

As a member of the healthcare team a CNA will take vital signs, monitor nutrition and hydration, assess for any physical or mental changes, and provide comfort measures and companionship.

CNA’s are in high demand across the healthcare continuum and are needed in hospitals, long term care facilities, assisted living, home care and hospice.
