Certified Nursing Assistants, sometimes called Nurses Aides, work under the supervision of nurses to provide important care to patients including assisting with hygiene, mobility and daily living tasks. In some cases CNA’s even take vital signs such as temperature, pulse rate, and blood pressure.
As a student in this program you’ll be trained in how to meet the needs of a patient’s physical and mental needs and to provide a safe environment for them, whether in a long-term care facility or in the patient’s home. Skills include:
- Taking and recording temperature, blood pressure
- Patient assistance skills – feeding, dressing and bathing
- Measuring food and liquid intake and output
- Patient care skills
- Medical terminology
- Related anatomy and physiology
- Safety and body mechanics
- Patient Abuse Prevention
