Certified Nurse Aide

The main role of a Certified Nurse Assistant (CNA) is to provide basic care to patients and assist them in daily activities that include bathing, dressing, feeding and taking vital signs. The role of a CNA is not glamorous but is extremely essential in long-term care. Compassionate individuals with a deep desire to care for others are needed to fill these positions.

Education & Experience:
A CNA must complete a state approved nurse aide training program, pass the nurse aide competency evaluation consisting of both a written and a skills test, and be listed in good standing as a CNA on the Alabama Certified Nurse Aide Registry. A nurse aide training program consists of a minimum of 16 hours of classroom instruction and 75 hours of clinical training. The training program must be approved by the Alabama Department of Pubic Health.
