Certified Nursing Assistant, or as abbreviated CNA, is a health care worker trained to perform certain medical procedures and assist with basic life needs. In the past 12 years I have worked for 8.5 years as CNA in all kind of facilities in the US health care system and would like to share some of my insights as well as a few details on this extreme profession – just another view from inside. One of the reasons is that I have repeatedly seen people to quit this job shortly after they started it, just because they had little or no idea on real CNA work. Another reason is to make all other people aware that there are still humans, who put care for others last priority in their lives. In this publication I will describe the work environment and challenges in the most common place for all nursing assistants to work at – the nursing home.
