Are you looking to get a job as a certified nursing assistant (CNA)? If so, you are going to need a certain type of personality and skill set in order to pass the competency exam. CNAs should be prepared with a strong personality and the ability to handle people well. It tends to be an intimate job where nurses can grow with their patients, creating a lasting bond that brings joy to the lives of everyone involved, despite otherwise poor circumstances. Typical responsibilities include assisting patients with the essential activities of daily life such as dressing, bathing, eating, or exercise.

You might be asked to perform a number of tasks such as treating wounds, assisting with medical procedures, cleaning linens, and feeding patients while recording their daily food and drink intake. You are also required to help document the health of the patient and report the information to other nurses or doctors.

When patients call for help, you will need to be there to respond. You’ll also be required to perform standard nursing duties such as checking vital signs, taking a patient’s temperature, blood pressure, and turning patients in their bed as needed.

This job often occurs in a hospital setting but it can also be found in a dedicated nursing facility or residential care building. In either situation, you will be required to interact with your patients daily. Being an assistant can bring a great amount of life experience and can help you build your résumé in the field of medicine. This job is also known as an attendant, orderly, home health aide, or nurses’ aid.
