Answer by  BellaMarie (109)

CNA's (Certified Nurse's Aide) typically work in nursing home settings with elderly or disabled patients. CNA's collect vital signs, pass out clean water and linen and assist with daily life activities such as feeding, bathing and changing adult diapers.

The work of a CNA can be very rewarding yet challenging. CNA's are employed in skilled nursing facilities, hospitals, and home health agencies. They may assist a RN/LVN with activities of daily living such as bathing, dressing, and eating. Some CNA's become medication certified.

One way to find out if this field suits you is to "shadow" someoen who does this work. You might also contact a local school that offers this program and as for their help. CNA's have a difficult but rewarding career. Good Luck!

I speak from experience. It is hard, tiring work. You end up doing what the nurse do not want to do.
