5 Different Settings Where CNA’s Work
We hear it all the time: one reason GHI graduates love what they do is their ability to work in so many different settings!
A Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) is a member of a medical team and works under the direction of a RN or LPN/LVN. As CNA’s, our graduates provide hands on care to patients from assistance with personal hygiene to taking vital signs. In almost any place a patient needs help, CNA’s are there.
Here are just five (of many!) settings where Gabriel Health Institute CNA graduates can work:
1. HOME HEALTH CARE
Gaining employment with a home health care agency allows you to work in a multitude of environments where no day is ever the same! As a home health care CNA, you will provide medical services to patients in the comfort of their own home.
Learn something new every day by working as a CNA at a hospital. Most CNA’s start their career in a hospital, where there is a high demand for skilled CNA’s to assist with the large number of patients that enter a hospital every day.
3. ASSISTED LIVING FACILITIES
Assisted living facilities require a substantial staff to care for their residents. If you enjoy a relaxed environment and work well with an older generation, consider looking into your local assisted living facilities.
CNA’s can be hired at schools as clinic assistants. Some schools will hire a CNA to work with the school nurse. If you enjoy working with kids, this ever-changing job atmosphere might be right for you.
5. SKILLED NURSING FACILITIES
Many CNA graduates begin working at a skilled nursing facility, despite the reputation of a lot of work and not enough hands to manage it. If you enjoy working hard, being part of a team and being in a fast-paced work environment, a skilled nursing facility might be for you!
