With a LNA, the student is eligible to apply to enter into the CAC Nursing Program.
Nurse Assisting involves the performance of routine tasks in the general care of hospital, clinic, and skilled care patients. Nursing Assistants work directly under the supervision of practical and registered nurses, assisting licensed staff in providing quality nursing care. This occupation is one of many possible steps on a career ladder in the healthcare field. Nursing Assistants are vital members of the healthcare team.
Potential employers include hospitals, residential care facilities, and patient homes.
