Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs) assist medical patients under the supervision of more experienced registered nurses. CNAs can work in a variety of settings, including hospitals, clinics, nursing/assisted living homes, and even in client homes. Although they are not licensed to carry out many of the procedures reserved for fully registered nurses, they can still provide valuable healthcare services to patients. Example CNA resumes should list all appropriate certifications and training programs, as well as demonstrate the ability to be compassionate, patient, and attentive to detail with patients--all qualities that are integral to the role.
