CERTIFIED NURSING ASSISTANT
What is a Patient Care or Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA)?
A certified nursing assistant (CNA) provides direct patient care by taking vital signs, obtaining lab specimens, assisting with activities of daily living, and observing and charting patient information. Graduates may be eligible to sit for the National Nurse Aide Assessment program (NNAAP) which determines competency to become enrolled in the State Nurse Aide Registry and, if successful on the exam, receive a certified nursing assistant (CNA) certificate. With the CNA credential, students can obtain an entry level health care position as certified nursing assistant, nurse aide, nurse assistant, geriatric aide, or hospital attendant.
