A Collection of Resources Related to  Becoming a Certified Nursing Assistant

Included in this post, I have chosen articles and resources to give you an overview of a career as a CNA, but first, a few brief points to consider.

If you enjoy helping people that are in need of healthcare then a job as a registered nursing assistant is a career option for you. This page contains tips and insights to give you an overview of what it’s like to have a career in nursing.

You will want to research this career to ensure you’re on the right path. As an added step I would suggest shadowing a nurse if that option is possible. If not, maybe you can interview a nurse or two, that can give you an overview of what you can expect from this career.

The last thing you want is to invest thousands of dollars and years of schooling to become a CNA only to find that you don’t like the career.


Have a look at the sections below that will help you in your research. Spend some time on the sections; “A Day in the Life”,  “Job Opportunities“, “Pros and Cons,“ and “FAQs.”

Also, have a look at the videos that offer an overview of what you can expect from a career as a CAN.
