Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs)
Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs) are healthcare professionals who provide intimate, hands-on healthcare to patients in medical settings under the supervision of a Registered Nurse (RN) or Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN). CNAs assist patients with direct health care needs and activities of daily living such as bathing, ambulating and checking vital signs.
While being a CNA is often considered an entry-level position, it is a great stepping-stone to other healthcare professions. Being a CNA can help prepare you for nursing or other healthcare professions. It is a fantastic place to start your career—Here, at Miami Dade College Medical Campus!
