The job opportunities for Nurse’s Aides or CNAs are on the rise in the United States due to the aging of the baby boomer population. More elderly people translate to a greater need for the health care industry to provide inpatient hospital care, in home services and compassionate care in skilled nursing facilities.
Training can begin with Charter Health Care Training Center where we understand patients’ needs and also the desires of so many individuals to find a steady, good paying job that positively impacts people’s lives.
CNA job duties involve hands-on physical work such as toileting, walking, feeding and bathing. CNA’s also dispense medications, take and record vital signs and communicate patient status to the rest of the health care team.
Essential to the position is the desire to help the frail, elderly and sick and to do so with competence and compassion. A nurse’s aide can have the most patient contact and so must be a good listener who can prioritize and communicate about basic and important elements of care.
The United States Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts a 21 percent growth rate by 2022 for Nurse’s Aides positions. Education through quality schools such as Charter Health Care Training Center awards a professional certificate to those who complete the required classroom and clinical training and who pass their state’s competency examination.
