Interested in a career where you can take care of others? Get started in the healthcare industry by becoming a CNA!
What’s a CNA? CNA stands for Certified Nursing Assistant. A CNA’s role is to provide basic care to patients, take vital signs, and assist patients in daily activities they might have trouble with on their own. CNAs typically report to Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs) or Registered Nurses (RNs) and provide a wide range of personal and medical care.
