CERTIFIED NURSE AIDES (CNA) work under the direction of other health care professionals, usually in nursing homes or hospitals. Their duties include taking the blood pressure, temperature, and pulse of patients. They help patients get in and out of bed, take baths, and dress. They also serve meals and perform housekeeping chores like making beds and cleaning rooms. Certified nursing assistants observe the patient’s physical, emotional, and mental status and report any changes to the medical or nursing staff. Nursing assistants that are employed in nursing homes are often the principal caregivers. They often have more contact with residents than other members of the staff. Since some residents may occupy a nursing home for months or even years, nurses’ aides often develop ongoing relationships with them and respond to them in a positive and caring manner.

An exciting thirty-hour internship in one of New York’s leading nursing homes is an integral part of this CNA program in NYC. The hands-on experience that you gain with CNA training provides you with the real experience that nursing homes look for when they hire new staff. Additionally, our CNA training graduates have the option of furthering their education and upgrading their credentials. Those who receive a certified nurse aide license can add training to become patient care technicians (PCT). Please visit our Patient Care Tech page for details about PCT certifications.
*If you are not already a CNA, ABC Training Center offers you the opportunity to become certified as an Advanced Nurse Aide by taking the CNA course and the EKG/Phlebotomy course combined. Again, you can visit our Patient Care Tech page for details. (Of course, you can always call us directly at 718-364-6700 and one of our admissions aides can answer all your specific questions).
