About Certified Nurse Aides
Nurse Aides, or Certified Nursing Assistants, are an essential part of any healthcare facility. They perform most of the essential healthcare task for patients, in addition to providing them with emotional support, and everyday physical upkeep (bathing, feeding, etc.). Compassion, a good work ethic, and attention to detail are all a must for this people-oriented career. Often, CNAs have the most frequent contact with patients, providing long-term care and gaining an insight into a patient’s condition that many other medical professionals may not have. The skills you gain as a nurse aide are also transferable if you wish to become an LPN or RN later in your career. If you want more info before deciding whether becoming a CNA is the right choice for you, below are some frequently asked questions about the profession and what it requires.
CNA’s 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.
