Certified nursing assistants (CNA) work under the supervision of a registered nurse to provide patient care, and they also perform routine tasks to aid nurses and doctors. The responsibilities that fall to nursing assistants are many and can range from administrative work to physical labor and direct patient care. A typical day for a certified nursing assistant may include setting up medical equipment for doctors, assisting patients with bathing and eating, providing nurses with patient status updates, and making up a patient's room or bed.

Because nurses and doctors are often called away for procedures, certified nursing assistants can have the most personal contact with patients. However, the position can be quite demanding and CNAs may be called to take care of a number of different tasks in a limited amount of time. The stress level of the work is generally high and is partially determined by the environment; CNAs can work in a number of different medical settings, the most common being hospitals and nursing homes.

Most CNAs receive their training though a program that includes both classroom and hands-on portions, covering required fields like anatomy, infection control, and communication. These courses are offered by community colleges, medical facilities, and the American Red Cross. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, this field is expected to grow faster than the average, especially in elder care facilities. Because the CNA job itself -- and elder care in particular -- can be very challenging, there is a high turnover rate. As a result, those looking to begin a career in this field will likely have no trouble landing a position.

This website offers school details to prospective students as an informational resource. The appearance of a school listing on this website should not be interpreted as an endorsement by the school of this site.

This website also offers school data. With the exception of the recommend rate percentage (which is the average based on the student reviews submitted to our partner site GradReports), all of the data was collected in 2014-2016 from the National Center for Education Statistics or from an official representative of the school. The NCES is the primary governmental entity for gathering and presenting data related to education. The NCES data is updated annually as soon as it becomes available. The NCES does not release data into downloadable formats until it has been approved, so the most currently available data will not be for the most recent academic year. Salaries and job growth were collected in 2016-2017 from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Financial aid information applies to those students who qualify for financial aid.
