Certified Nursing Assistants Do More Than Just Make a Living: They Make a Difference.
An effective healthcare team is made up of more than just doctors and nurses. Certified Nursing Assistants play an essential role on any healthcare team by providing critical support and patient care under the direction of a licensed RN. That may explain why the demand for qualified CNAs is on the rise and expected to continue to grow. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the healthcare industry will add nearly 120,000 CNA jobs by 2029, which is considered to be growing at a much faster than average rate.*
