About Being a CNA

Why Be a CNA?

  • It's a perfect opportunity to help others!
  • It’s a great stepping stone to other careers, such as LPN and RN.
  • Once you are a CNA, many health care facilities will pay your tuition for LPN or RN school.
  • Most health care facilities provide excellent benefits, such as insurance, retirement, sick leave, and paid time off.
  • Job Security!  There is a tremendous shortage of CNAs!
There is a growing demand for nursing assistants due to the increasing long-term care needs of an aging population.
