They also give patients food based on what they need to eat and write down important signs like blood pressure and temperature.

Besides taking care of patients, CNAs might use medical tools like billing software, health information software, and software to keep medical records. Depending on how much they’ve learned, their experience, and what the rules are in their area, CNAs might also give patients medicine or do other special jobs.

Being a CNA needs physical strength and a wish to help patients who might be weak or lonely because of illness. A good CNA also needs to talk well and work well in a healthcare team.

These assistants use their skills to operate equipment for checking patients’ health signs, and they need to be very careful to get the right information for doctors and insurance companies. They also need to be good at talking to patients, especially if patients are feeling unwell.
