As the shortage of nursing professionals pose a challenge to the health care needs of the bulging senior population, nursing assistants and other unlicensed professionals will step up to help relieve the burden of care in acute and long-term care facilities. With a goal of increasing the caregiver workforce, the state of New Jersey has approved nursing aide training programs at multiple locations throughout the state. The goal of the program is to quickly, within 4 to 8 weeks, prepare adults to fill caregiver positions in long-term care. Graduates will be eligible to sit the New Jersey NNAAP to be added to the Nurse Aide Registry. The job outlook for Certified Nursing Assistants is positive as the demand for these providers of care is rapidly outstripping supply. Filling the vacant positions is a top priority for employers so that CNAs may benefit from sign on bonuses and other incentives. Long-standing vacancies affect the ability to care for those in need. Many CNAs move on to the profession of nursing after gaining some experience caring for patients in this entry-level role. Others choose to stay in the role and pursue certifications, mentorship opportunities, and further training to provide the best quality care in the evolving health care system.
