Only after you get CNA certification in Rhode Island, will you be eligible to practice as a nurse aide in various hospitals, nursing homes and adult care centers. If you are planning to join the healthcare industry and you think that you have the patience and sympathy to serve the ill and needy, then this profession would be right for you. The nurse aides are supposed to take care of the personal needs of the patients like feeding, toileting, walking, dressing, and taking their vital signs. They are also responsible for providing emotional and moral support to patients. You can later on specialize in your work like geriatrics, pediatrics, emergency care setting and so on.
