Nursing Assistant Exam Study Aide

A Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) usually works under an LPN (Licensed Practical Nurse) or RN (Registered Nurse), but there is still an exam to pass before earning a job in the field.

Usually, CNAs can work in a variety of locations, like hospitals, adult day care centers, nursing homes, and personal homes. A CNA spends more time with a patient than an LPN or RN, so they need to have good people skills, able to listen to patient complaints as well as help in any way a patient may need.
