Certified nursing assistants are superheroes with gentle hands, encouraging words and compassionate hearts supporting patients when they need it most. The main role of a nursing assistant is to act as a bridge between patients and doctors. A CNA can work in a wide range of medical facilities including long-term care facilities, hospitals, clinics, specialist offices, doctor’s offices, acute care facilities and beyond.
How to look for a job?
Once you finish your education pass your certification exam, finding a right job is the next big and crucial task. In order to find the correct job, following steps are few guidelines that can lead you in the right direction:
1. Build Your Resume
This is one of the most important step. Resume should be created in a way that it summaries the education, experience and the skills required for a nursing position. Certification adds weightage to the resume, thus it’s always recommended to get nationally certified.
2. Do Research
There are various facilities where a certified nursing assistant can work for. Research about the potential employers using search engines and social media. Connect with employers and ask more about the job openings. To apply in hospitals, one needs to create an account on their individual website and then keep a track on the jobs that are posted.
3. Apply on Job portals
Online job portals like Indeed, LinkedIn and Monster keep posting the recent job openings in the market. Create your account, filter your location and job type and then keep looking for jobs.
