Certified Nursing Assistants (CNA) work under the supervision of Registered Nurses (RN) and Physicians and handle many facets of patient care. CNAs help patients with basic functions such as eat, bathing and getting dressed. They may also answer calls for help, deliver messages, serve meals, make beds, and tidy up rooms. CNAs may assist Nurses by taking a patient's temperature, pulse, respiration rate, or blood pressure, as well as setting up equipment, storing and moving supplies, and assisting with some procedures. CNAs may also observe a patients condition and report any change to the nursing or medical staff. The position of CNA can also be an entry point into a future career as a RN. The job outlook for this career is good, based on the growing aging population.
