Certified Nursing Aide


Certified nurse aides help patients of all ages perform basic daily tasks under a nurse’s supervision. They are active and may need to help lift or move patients. Attention to safety, compassion, communication and critical-thinking skills are essential because patients depend on your care.

Certified nurse aides are in demand in nursing homes, assisted living facilities, hospices, hospitals and long-term care settings.
