What does a CNA do?
In most jobs as a nursing assistant, you will be working as a front-line caregiver to patients under the direction of a registered or licensed practical nurse. Depending upon where you work, you could be assigned to helping admit and discharge patients; taking care of patients’ basic activities of daily living, such as obtaining specimens, preparing and maintaining patients’ rooms and beds, or assisting with any number of responsibilities that help to assure the physical and emotional comfort, safety, nutrition, hygiene, grooming, and mobility of those in your care.
Upon successful completion of the NA course, you will be eligible to take the certification exam. After obtaining your certification, you will be listed on the Wisconsin Nurse Aide Registry and you can seek work immediately.
Obtaining your CNA serves as the first step in any nursing career.
