Complete CNA certification training in 3 months to become a licensed nursing assistant
There are around fourteen schools in the state of New Mexico that specialize in CNA training. Becoming a Certified Nursing Assistant can be a rewarding career for those who love to serve and assist others. CNAs are commonly found working in nursing homes, adult day care centers, hospitals, and home health care settings. They assist the nurse with the care of the patient/s and complete such tasks as taking vital signs, collecting specimens, and reporting any changes in the patient’s condition. The CNA also helps the patient in completing various tasks such as bathing, grooming, feeding, and many other activities of daily living. As the population of the elderly increases, so will the need for CNAs and others who specialize in the hands-on care of the sick, elderly, and disabled.
By becoming a CNA you can take pride in knowing that what you do will make a difference in the lives of others. You will be the one who reaches out and touches many lives. Your education and your career as a CNA will give you a whole new outlook on what it means to assist and to serve. It takes a special, compassionate, selfless individual to care for others. To assist and serve those in need not only lifts them up and gives them a sense of worth, but it will do the same for you.
