Complete CNA certification training in 3 months to become a licensed nursing assistant

New Hampshire, like most other states, is experiencing high demand for CNAs (Certified Nursing Assistants). Also known as Nurse Aides, these individuals assist patients or clients with healthcare needs under the supervision of a Registered Nurse or a Licensed Practical Nurse. In fact, some hospitals and nursing facilities in New Hampshire that are strapped for nursing assistants might be willing to offer free on-the-job training to those who will work for them.

The duties and responsibilities of a CNA include taking and recording vital signs, measuring the patient’s blood pressure, respiration, pulse, and temperature. CNAs should also be able to measure the patient’s input and output. The input means observing and recording how many ounces the patient has drunk and amount of meals they ate. Recording the output includes the urine, stools, emesis, sputum, and/or blood. The most common outputs recorded are urine and stool. As a basic care provider, CNAs should always keep the patient’s bed dry and make sure that the patient is hydrated. Assisting patients with dressing, walking, toileting, eating and drinking when necessary is part of the job. The CNA will also be trained to assist with Range of Motion (ROM) exercises if the patient’s mobility is an issue and may transport patients to hospital appointments. This will include transferring the patient from bed to chair and moving them by wheelchair or litter.

The average annual income of a CNA in New Hampshire ranges from $25,000 to $30,000. And as mentioned, the CNA position is in high demand right now. If you are looking for an open CNA position, you should be able to find a long list of employers searching for the right candidate for the job. In some cases, it is possible to find an employer that offers a higher salary than others in hopes of securing the best possible candidates for their facility.

To become a CNA in New Hampshire, an individual must complete the one hundred fourty-four (144) hours of training that is required. CNA students have the option to attend the training program on a full-time or part-time basis. Full-time students complete the nursing assistant course within eight weeks while part-time students complete the same training in twelve weeks. Enrollment typically takes place twice a year, during the fall and spring semesters. Students who are interested in attending CNA classes have a lot of choices when it comes to selecting a training facility. The nursing assistant programs prepare students for the nurse aide certification exam and for entry level positions in health care environments.
