Become a Certified Nursing Assisant (CNA)


What is a Certified Nursing Assistant?

Becoming a Certified Nursing Assistant is the perfect stepping-stone into a career as a nurse. While a CNA is not technically a nurse, CNAs work alongside nurses, and most progress to LPNs and RNs. CNAs usually work in hospitals and clinics, but they do not have the same amount of training and education as they RN counter-parts. CNAs have plenty of patient interaction, but they are limited in what they can do.
