The economy of the southwestern state of New Mexico has been dependent on the oil production and tourism for many years. It is the third largest crude oil producer of America and with exotic locations ranging from deserts to Snow Mountains; it has been a great tourist attraction. Behind all this there has been one industry that has been slowly catching its root; the healthcare industry. Due to health conscious population compounded by the ageing populace this sector has boomed even in economic downtimes. CNA nursing schools in New Mexico offer a wonderful platform to enter the healthcare industry and it is a great career option.
A certified nursing assistant works as per the directions given by a registered nurse (RN) or doctor and perform all the duties delegated to him/ her. The duties include feeding patients, moving them around, bathing and dressing, taking vital signs and reporting changes to patients. All these are allied medical duties and by performing them the nurse aides reduce the burden of RN so that they can divert their energies to the important medical issues.
