Successful CNAs: Education Is the Key!

Printer-friendly version


As a CNA, you probably work with people who have been diagnosed with a variety of different diseases: cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, arthritis, depression, COPD, diabetes…and many more.  And, you’ve probably cared for clients who have special needs because of:
  • A specific prescribed diet.
  • Recent surgery.
  • A risk of pressure sores.
  • A terminal illness.
  • Cultural differences.
  • A history of falling down.
  • An inability to eat independently.
  • Acute or chronic pain.
The list goes on and on, doesn’t it? Let's face it: most people in the nursing field have felt overwhelmed at times, wishing they knew more about how to help their clients.  But, there's good news!  The solution is simple: ongoing education. As a health care professional, it is crucial that you seek out the information you need to meet your clients’ needs and to ensure that you shine at your job!
Many CNAs follow their employer’s continuing-education program…and leave it at that. And, some healthcare organizations have outstanding education programs. But if you feel like you need to supplement your workplace education with additional inservices, you can do just that at Just for CNAs…all at your own pace—and on your own time! 
Maybe you just want to brush up on the newest information regarding a specific disease, client care issue or workplace safety? At Just for CNAs, we offer well over 100 topics, each of which will add to your value as a nursing assistant. To get started, how about downloading our free inservice called “Customer Service in Healthcare” and then leaving a comment on this blog entry as to how it helped you?  We look forward to your valuable input
Thanks for reading!
