As a certified nursing assistant, you play many roles to ensure patients receive the best care possible. So, leave the work of finding your next career up to Sunbelt.
At Sunbelt, we empower CNAs, like you, to excel in their career with jobs that fit their needs.
A certified nursing assistant (CNA) is a healthcare professional who works with registered nurses (RNs) and licensed practical/vocational nurses (LPNs/LVNs) to care for patients. CNAs are a vital part of any healthcare team and allow nurses to focus more on the tasks that require licensure by ensuring that their patients are still receiving care.
CNA jobs include roles in hospitals, nursing homes and home health care. Travel CNA jobs are temporary contract jobs that fill a need at a specific hospital or healthcare facility.
Some CNA responsibilities include:
To become a CNA, you must be certified by completing a 4-12 week course. CNA requirements are different for each facility as some locations may allow providers to work in CNA roles without a CNA certification.
The requirements for CNA positions in a specific role may include additional on-the-job training. Travel CNAs who work in specific areas may need prior experience in that area, as on-the-job training is typically not provided on travel assignments.
The projected 10-year CNA job outlook in 2014 was 17% growth, higher than average for other industries. The average CNA salary can be higher when including working off shifts, weekend shifts, holidays or travel positions.
Most experts agree that the demand put on healthcare workers in the past several years will likely increase the number of CNA positions and the average salary.
Sunbelt is dedicated to helping CNAs like you reach their full potential and see their careers in a whole new light. We pride ourselves on providing personalized career support focused on helping you achieve your long-term career goals.
