Nursing assistants, also called nurse aides or CNAs (Certified Nursing Assistants), assist patients with basic daily tasks. They work in hospitals and long-term care settings like nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and home care. Their responsibilities may include helping patients with their personal hygiene and with eating, repositioning bedridden patients, and taking a patient's vital signs. Nursing assistants work under the supervision of registered nurses (RNs) or licensed practical nurses (LPNs). Most nursing assistants have a high school diploma or GED, and all nursing assistants must complete a state-approved training program administered by a community college, online school, or medical facility. They must pass a state exam to become certified. Typically, nursing assistants demonstrate a high level of empathy and compassion.
