About CNA Courses Connecticut: 

What does a C.N.A. Do?

Certified Nurses Assistants are employed by hospitals, nursing homes, outpatient clinics, and private individuals to take care of patients’ everyday needs. A  large amount of a CNA’s work involves personal care duties such as bathing, dressing, and feeding patients, as well as brushing teeth and combing hair. CNAs help patients in and out of bed, often by lifting or carrying them, and assist them with walking as they travel to and from surgeries and treatments  In almost all work environments, CNAs answer patients’ calls for help, take their vital signs, and monitor their behavior and physical condition for progress or deterioration. All CNAs work under the supervision of an experienced nurse.
