Wherever there is a need for personal care, certified Nursing Assistants (CNA), or nurse aides, are there.

Certified Nursing Assistants, CNA, are the caregivers who, for the most part, help patients of all ages perform the most basic day-to-day tasks.  CNA’s work under the supervision of a nurse, and since they have extensive daily contact with each patient, they place a key role in keeping the nurse up-to-date on vital information about the patient’s conditions.
