About Certified Nursing Assistant Test Assessment

A certified nursing assistant, or CNA, helps patients or clients with healthcare needs under the supervision of a Registered Nurse (RN) or a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN). Also known as a Nursing Assistant (NA) a Patient Care Assistant (PCA) or a State Tested Nurse Aid (STNA), the individual who carries this title needs a strong work ethic and ability, but issues of liability and legality prevent CNAs from performing certain procedures.

Like home health aides, Certified Nursing Assistants often help patients feed, bathe and dress. They also help patients change positions while in bed and help them move from their beds to wheelchairs. In addition, they listen to patients' health concerns, noting symptoms or changes in patients' conditions in their charts. They also monitor patients' vital signs and report this information to doctors or nurses. Some states allow CNAs to administer medication, and in nursing homes and other long-term care facilities, CNAs often act as the primary caregivers and have more contact with patients than anyone else on staff, including nurses.
