Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA)

Certification Overview

Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA)

Exam Code: CNA-001

A CNA’s workload can become intense and fast-paced, but the human contact and ability to help those in medical need is a strong motivating factor. A desire to help people and compassion for patients can help a nurse’s assistant get through difficult days.

Nursing assistants fulfill basic quality-of-life needs for patients of any age in residential nursing care facilities or outpatient clinics. Since nursing assistants have daily contact with patients, they are gatherers of vital information about the patients’ conditions, which they must then transmit to their supervisors.

Certified nursing assistants (CNAs) have a variety of responsibilities in the medical field, including performing administrative duties, completing basic clinical procedures, transporting patients, and providing assistance to nurses and other healthcare professionals. This occupation can be physically demanding, with standing for many hours and occasionally lifting or moving patients who require assistance.

Our E-course provides you with an overview of the vital role of the nursing professional in supporting both the patient and physician along with the procedures and techniques applied when performing the physical examination, the physical assessment, specimen collection and measurement of patient vital signs.

E-Course Duration: 15 to 20 Hours
