Professional opportunities for Certified Nursing Assistants (CNA) include working under the supervision of a licensed registered nurse (RN) or a licensed practical nurse (LPN) in a long term facility, a hospital, or in home health. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor statistics, CNA jobs are increasing in number, making it an optimal career path. Positions for CNA’s are expected to grow an estimated 19% over the next ten years, which is a faster rate than the national average.
