Hello Ms. Haley

This is a great question about Certified Nurse Assistant role.
Becoming a CNA is much needed these days, and there is a variety of settings in which you can work

Example:
Hospital
Senior Living Homes/Centers
Home Health

A CNA is crucial as you are an IMPORTANT part of the patients care team. As a CNA it can be busy and stressful, but some days are easier than other days.

To make your day as easy as possible its imperative to huddle with the other members of the care team, or the Registered Nurse. That way you know what to expect in your day, and to help plan your day, clarify questions you may have and to provide input as needed.

CNA’s assist with tasks; such as Turning patients/bathing/incontinence/getting patients out of bed, assist with feeding, etc.

The CNA’s that I work with have a clear understanding regarding the patients Plan of Care for the day, this making the CNA’s job easier.

If you have a good team and communication you will be satisfied with your job, and prepare for your day appropriately.

When my CNA enters a patients room I also enter the room; especially at the start and end of the shift
This gives patients a clear understanding of whom is caring for them today, coordination of care, sets expectations for the shift, and it decreases the interruptions for patients to get rest.

Best of Luck and Hope this helps!!!

Bailey’s Answer

I was a CNA/PCT prior to becoming a nurse. It is hard work. I worked in the ICU so the nurses delegated the following to me: bed baths to vented and non-vented patients, get every non-vented patient to chair in the morning if stable, clean all the beds and change the sheets, oral care, check blood sugars on all diabetics, round on every patient every 2hrs, answer all call lights, help patients to bathroom, record urine output, and so much more. Sometimes I would have to “patient sit” which is when the CNA will sit with a suicide patient or dementia patient.
