Job Opportunities for Nurse’s Aides

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. The successful nurse’s aide will be placed in the official state registry for CNAs.

The Charter Health Care Training Center offers quality and very affordable professional training for those individuals who wish to pursue a career in the ever-expanding vocation of nurse’s aide. Students learn and practice the latest health care techniques and get excellent preparation for their future career. Instructors are expert and experienced registered nurses who are eager to pass their knowledge on to a new group of caregivers.

    If you’re currently training to be a nurse practitioner, then I suppose you’ve hit the jackpot. Health care reform has ratcheted up the demand for medical professionals across the country. Baby boomers are beginning to see an onslaught of ailments brought on by age, and they are seeking medical treatment at increased rates. Job opportunities remain excellent and what surprises me the most is that unemployment in this field is astonishingly low. The highest-paid in the profession are pulling in six figures. But for many, the decision to enter this profession wasn’t spurned by the money or the changing political tide, but the chance to help people. That’s the real job description for a nurse practitioner

    Any nurse worth their weight in water knows, understand, values and appreciates the function and role every CNA plays in the delivery of our patient care. And yet, I still see RN’s treating their CNA team member horribly. Here is the best piece of advice I can give to any RN out there when delegating to their CNA team members: Never delegate out of sheer personal convenience. Too many times I have seen/heard/witnessed an RN/LPN delegate a task to a CNA simply because it was inconvenient for them. We all know the stories and the urban legends of CNAs always doing the dirty work (bed baths & bedpans to name a few), while the RN/LPN walks away.

    I think this is a great post because I have been talking to people especially my daughter about how under staffed they are in the hospitals and what we could do about it, this is one of the answers to that problem. I hope you will post more about this subject because this is how we get the word out as to what people can do to change the situation.

    I thought about this once until I shadowed a nurses aide in school and decided that they were over worked big time for the amount of pay they were getting and they were tasked with some of the worst jobs you could get. I have had to clean up after people my entire life and that is not what I want to do as a career.

    It makes me happy to go to work when I know I have built a caring and trusting relationship with my patients and their families… to know they are comfortable with me coming in… knowing that they can share those sometimes deep, dark secrets that they can’t with anyone else, but need to let go of to attain peace. It is such a privilege to be with people who are so comfortable with you that they can tell you these important secrets that need to be unburdened. Massaging, bathing my patients, getting them relaxed and comfortable and feeling fresh, makes me feel good too. Seeing them feel good, putting on a brightly colored top, applying lotion to soothe their skin – the physical contact is really important.
