Also known as patient care technicians, orderlies, and nurse’s aides, these people provide an indispensable part of patient care. A Certified Nursing Assistant helps nurses in medical facilities by giving basic care to the patients, which is vital in hospitals, clinics, and nursing homes. The demand is high for qualified CNAs even in this time of global recession and economic failure.
