Wherever there is a need for hands‐on personal care, certified Nursing Assistants (CNA), or nurse aides, are there. Nursing assistants are the caregivers who help patients of all ages perform the most essential basic activities of daily life, like bathing, toileting, dressing, and eating. CNAs work under the supervision of nurses, and since they have extensive daily contact with each patient, they play a key role in keeping nurses informed about patients’ needs.
Students must have an overall GPA of 2.0 or higher in order to earn a degree or certificate.
