Intro to Chicago CNA Jobs
Certified nursing assistants (more commonly known as CNAs and sometimes called LNAs) are crucial members of any healthcare team in both acute and post-acute settings. Under the supervision of an RN or an LPN, CNAs are responsible for hands-on care of patients including helping with daily living activities, checking vital signs, and in some cases, administering the medications that are important to the health and recovery of their patients.
There are more than 1 million people working as CNAs in the United States, and with a job growth outlook of 5% in the next 10 years, still more are needed. This can be a physically as well as an emotionally demanding job, but also incredibly rewarding for those who value direct interaction with patients and want to make an impact on people’s lives. You can find many current CNA jobs in locations across the country, and in all settings, by taking a look at IntelyCare’s job board.
