Stepping into the nursing field and becoming a certified nursing assistant is a rewarding decision for those students, who really want to become health care or medical professionals. CNAs suggest that they assist the senior nurses and doctors in the hospitals, nursing homes and other health care facilities. Certified nursing assistants have to practice nursing under the guidance and supervision of their senior nurses. They perform various responsible tasks such as feeding and bathing the patients, providing them with medication, helping them to recover the disabilities, repositioning them whenever required, keeping their health records, recognizing their vital signs and communicating between the patients and doctors. All of these jobs require highly skilled knowledge of nursing which is acquired after taking CNA classes. The nursing programs are offered by various schools, community colleges, vocational schools, health care facilities, medical schools, etc., in all the states.
