Nurse Assistant 1

Jake Silver Nursing Assistant 1 student

Certified nursing assistants (CNAs) are important healthcare providers who support patients with daily activities and supply routine care such as assessing temperatures, pulse, respiration, and blood pressure, activities of daily living and providing nursing assistant procedures. Supervised by a registered nurse or license practical nurse, CNAs are commonly referred to as the “eyes and ears” of the nurse because they spend more time observing and interacting with patients.

This training provides insight into patient care that will prove invaluable as you pursue your nursing or health sciences career. Another common term for CNA is Nurse Aide I.
