Certified Nursing Assistant Job Description

If you have any interest in helping people or in a career as a nurse, but do not have a medical degree or nurse training, then a career as a certified nursing assistant might be just for you. Work as a certified nursing assistant involves numerous duties, most of which revolve around providing care for patients. Nursing assistants help patients to move, bathe, eat, and perform other basic duties that patients cannot do by themselves. Specific certified nursing assistant job descriptions may also include such duties as making beds, cleaning messes, helping patients use the restroom, and checking vital signs. Becoming a nursing assistant requires very little, only a short training program, usually provided by the hospital that employs you. Experience in this professional looks good on a resume when applying to become a certified nurse.
