Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs) play an essential role in healthcare services. CNAs work under the direction of a licensed nurse in a team following an established plan of care. These healthcare professionals provide direct patient care, assisting individuals in their everyday activities including personal grooming, nutrition, mobility, taking vital signs, and measuring weight, intake, and output as well as other tasks in their scope of practice. (See the Occupational Outlook Handbook.) A CNA state certificate is required to work for long-term care facilities in California. Crafton Hills College prepares the student for certification, the college does not certify CNAs.
