A Certified Nursing Assistant provides treatment and direct care services to sick, disabled and terminally ill patients under the guidance of a registered nurse or licensed vocational nurse. The role involves transferring and transporting patients, measuring and recording vital signs, cleaning patients’ rooms, and assisting with the activities of daily living. While the majority of CNAs work in long-term care facilities and hospitals, there’s a growing need for direct care services in the home especially as it becomes more cost effective to treat chronically ill patients in the comfort of their homes. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of nursing assistants and orderlies will grow faster than other occupations through the year 2020 in response to the growing needs of the elderly population. In Florida, any individual 18 years or older may take the state exam – with or without formal nurse assistant training. Training covers the core study areas in preparation for the written and skills evaluation. Therefore, students who enroll in a CNA class will increase their chances of success. Many CNAs pursue further education that leads to certification as licensed practical nurses or registered nurses.
