What is a CNA?

The position of certified nursing assistant, commonly referred to with the acronym of CNA, assists patients with important healthcare needs. This individual serves as a liaison between patients and Licensed Practical Nurses or Registered Nurses. CNAs work in a wide variety of facilities, ranging from hospitals to skilled nursing facilities, home care settings, adult daycare centers, assisted living facilities, hospices and beyond.

If you want to become a CNA, Lifework Education can help you obtain a certification with our informative medical courses. We also help CNAs find employment in the employment settings listed above. This line of work is perfect for those interested in helping others. CNAs do much more than provide care to patients.

You will enjoy daily contact with patients, help them with serious medical needs, and enjoy a lucrative and rewarding career.
