CNA Jobs

CNA Job Overview

Certified Nursing Assistants are similar to physician's assistants and orderlies. They work with patients in retirement homes, clinics, hospitals and other medical settings. The duties of the job vary based on where the employees work, but those searching for CNA jobs might find that they need to take patients on walks, clean them in their beds, help patients in wheelchairs get in and out of bed, and take vital statistics. Assistance with meals is another task associated with the job.

CNA Job Education Requirements

Certified Nursing Assistant jobs are open to those who completed a CNA training program. Often available through community colleges and vocational schools, these programs involve some clinical field work along with classroom learning. Prior to working in the field or applying to Certified Nursing Assistant jobs, they must pass a competency examination available in the state. Those who pass the test can request their names added to the state registry, which gives them the chance to work as a CNA for a nursing home. Patience, physical strength and communication skills are all needed for the job.

CNA Job Market

Certified Nursing Aide jobs will increase at a rate of approximately 21 percent between 2012 and 2022. There were more than 1.5 million Certified Nursing Assistants working in the United States in 2012, but there is projected to be an additional 321,2000 CNA positions available by the end of 2022. Care Assistant jobs and Physician Assistant jobs will likely increase at a similar rate. Care assistants typically work in the homes of their clients, while physician assistants often work in a hospital under the supervision and guidance of a medical doctor.

CNA Job Salary Information

CNAs typically don't make a base annual salary, but they do make an hourly wage. Those starting out in the field might only make $8 an hour, but they have the chance to make up to $25 an hour. Those working for charity organizations and retirement homes often make less than those who work for hospitals. With experience, a CNA can make more than $30,000 a year.
