What a CNA does?

A Certified Nursing Assistant's (CNA) main role is to provide basic care to patients, as well as assist them in daily activities they might have trouble with on their own, such as bathing. Because of the personal nature of the job a Certified Nursing Assistant is expected to have people skills and the ability to be compassionate and enjoy helping others. In nursing or long-term care facilities, a CNA is often a patient's main caregiver. CNA's report to either Registered Nurses or Licensed Practical Nurses.
