The job of a CNA is very similar to a nurse’s aide in the past. Aides worked with nurses and conducted medical and household tasks that nurses had no interest in the scene. Until recently, there was no formal certification programs for nurse aides. They used to learn tasks through a hospital orientation, followed by training in the workplace, helping nurses.

    so… with all the new issues that nurses are faced with in today’s world, why don’t they just change the duties of the CNA? I have heard nothing but complaints about what the nurses have to deal with as far as the documentation is concerned – well, if a nursing ASSISTANT was able to do the things that the nurses was “not interested in doing”, then why don’t you allow the CNAs to be trained to do the documentation FOR you – uh, I don’t know, I was just thinking that’s what ASSISTANT meant… and people wonder why CNAs get rap – I have heard so many people say “oh, don’t say “just” a CNA” or “your job as a CNA is very important…. yeah, so the nurses don’t have to wipe asses or do any dirty jobs? As far as I’m concerned, I think if the nurses are so worried about patient care and the amount they are able to provide to the patient do to over demanding documentation – train the CNA and give her/him a reason to be proud of her/his job!
