CNA Job Description
Certified Nursing Assistants are typically employed in hospitals, nursing homes, community care facilities, home health, and long-term healthcare facilities. CNAs are responsible for providing basic patient care under the direct supervision of the nurse or physician. CNAs play a major role in every healthcare team – no matter what setting they work in.
CNA Job Responsibilities
The responsibilities of a CNA may differ in every healthcare setting. Despite the differences, their duties remain similar in many ways such as:
- CNAs can provide assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs). This includes assistance with bathing, toileting, grooming, dressing, and ambulation.
- CNAs observe patients. They can take, record, and report the patient’s vital signs; record the patient’s height and weight; observe and record fluid and food intake and output, and note any changes in a patient’s health condition.
- CNAs ensure patient comfort and safety. They are responsible for making sure that their patient is comfortable and safe in their room or home. They make sure that the patient’s living environment is clean, tidy, and that it is free from accident hazards.
- CNAs can perform certain procedures under the supervision of an RN. They can perform tasks such as wound care, instilling edemas, medication administration, and more under the supervision of a Registered Nurse.
CNA as a Prerequisite
Earning a CNA Certification can also serve as a prerequisite for those who wish to pursue a higher level of a healthcare program.
