Certified Nursing Assistants
Certified Nursing Assistants are crucial members of any health care team. They are continuously working under the direction of a nurse. (RN or LPN/LVN) CNAs also provide hands on nursing care to patients, residents, clients and customers in various health care settings. CNAs usually provide assistance with self-care, such as bathing, dressing, eating, toileting and oral care to patients who are unable to complete these tasks on their own. CNAs are often often the staff member, who will read the patient’s vital signs, weigh the patients and they measure the patient’s height.
CNA exams are normally taken in two parts. There is a written component and a hands-on skills component. The written component of the test is typically in a multiple-choice format and will evaluate the CNAs knowledge of the subjects that all CNAs are expected to know.
Anyone writing a CNA exam must have a high school diploma or GED.
