Nowadays Certified Nursing Assistants (CNA) turned out to be rather in demand in the United States. At the same time a lot of people eager to get necessary knowledge and start working. Especially it concerns students as they are younger and more mobile in comparison with middle-aged candidates. Moreover, they seem to perceive new information and get new skills momentarily. Besides, this job doesn't demand a diploma to get which one should enter university and have been studying there for 4-5 years. But still nursing assistance is a very responsible duty because you are an intermedium between a disabled person and his/her environment. If your client is deaf you become his ears; if he is blind you are his eyes; if he is palsy you are his arms etc. That's why preparative educational programmes for CNAs are rather powerful. In spite of the fact that courses last only some weeks (from 4 up to 12 weeks) be sure internal examinations will be very serious.
Usually the CNA Testing embodies two traditional parts - theoretical and practical. It's not a problem to pass through the first one. There are many sources of information you need. Apart from basic lectures delivered in special teaching schools, colleges you can take additional interactive lessons. Just surf the Internet to find them. Buy particularized DVDs and try your hand in taking online exams. So you need only some patience and assiduity to learn theory.
But practical part is more important. You'll be asked to demonstrate such skills as hand washing, measuring temperature, moving a person from bed to wheel-chair and others. First of all, an examiner will estimate not technique but your relation towards your duties. He knows your real exam will take place at the moment when you begin working. Abidance by hygienic rules, privacy, readiness to help at any moment, ability to communicate... Everything will be tested. You should be capable of doing different domestic things carefully whether it's opening and shutting windows, switching on/off the light/TV, passing any item to a client or play a role of companion during shopping and going out.
