CNA Classes Tulsa, OK

CNAs provide basic patient care services under the direction of a licensed practical nurse or registered nurse. Due to the nature of their duties, they often spend more time with patients than other members of the healthcare team. Their close interactions with patients in long-term care facilities include assisting them with personal care activities, such as bathing, toileting, dressing, grooming, and eating. For this reason, patients may confide in their attending CNAs and look to them for emotional and physical support. Nursing assistant programs prepare students to care for patients within the legal and ethical framework of state and federal laws. At the conclusion of the training, graduates will take the Nurse Aide Competency evaluation for placement on the Oklahoma Nurse Aide Registry. CNAs work in extended-care facilities, patients’ homes, hospitals, and clinics. Many CNAs use the job as a means of supporting their education as they study to become a licensed practical or registered nurse.
