Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs) are trained health professionals that provide direct care whether in-home or in a facility to their clients who are unable to care for themselves.
A Certified Nursing Assistant or CNA is a type of nursing professional that assists the patients with activities of daily living (ADLs) and other healthcare needs under the direct supervision of a registered nurse (RN) or licensed practice nurse (LPN).
As compared to other nursing professionals, being a CNA does not require any college degree. Any prospective nursing assistant should enroll in a state-sanctioned training program and then pass a state certification exam.
Building a care plan or care program is a part of the core curriculum of CNA training. These care plans help CNAs to stay focused and work according to the clients’ needs.
