Do you aspire to pursue a career in the healthcare field? Do you long to be part of a team dedicated to improving lives? Is the idea of patients appealing to you? Then consider pursuing a career as a certified nursing assistant (CNA).
As a certified nursing assistant, you will provide basic care to patients unable to care for themselves. Your responsibilities will range from taking temperature readings to taking care of your patients. In fact, in most health care facilities, CNAs are responsible for providing care for patients.
Requirements to Become a CNA

Pass the CNA Competency Exam
After you complete your training, you will be eligible to take a knowledge and skills certification exam. Your training program will offer practice exams that will prepare you, so you’ll know what to expect when taking the test. Your instructors will narrow the training to focus on topics that are included in the exam. Once you receive your certificate, it’s important that you inquire about how often you should renew your certification.
