Certified Nursing Assistant

Nursing aides, sometimes called nursing attendants or nursing assistants, provide basic care and help with basic living activities. They typically do the following:

 

    • Clean and bathe patients or residents
    • Help patients use the toilet and dress
    • Turn, reposition, and transfer patients between beds and wheelchairs
    • Listen to and record patients’ health concerns and report that information to nurses
    • Measure patients’ vital signs, such as blood pressure and temperature
    • Serve meals and help patients eat
    • Some nursing aides and attendants may also dispense medication, depending on their training level and the state in which they work. (CNA’s are not allowed to pass out medication in the state of GA.)

 

In nursing homes, aides and attendants are often the principal caregivers. They have more contact with residents than other members of the staff. Because some residents stay in a nursing home for months or years, aides and attendants may develop close, caring relationships with their patients.
