Not only do certified nursing assistants put so much into the delicate and precious work they perform on the job, assisting patients in performing their activities of daily living (ADLs), but they are also there for the emotional support of those they so selflessly serve. Nursing assistants care for patients in their most vulnerable conditions, often when they can no longer care for themselves and often at the end stages of their life. That's right. CNAs are often the ones at a patient's bedside, holding their hand as they take their last breath, in many cases without any family members present. Furthermore, CNAs are often subjected to workplace injury, and The National Nursing Assistant Survey found more than half of all nursing assistants have been injured at least once on the job. It's a noble profession, and CNAs must adhere to licensing requirements to maintain their licenses and continue to provide care to patients who need it most.

A Certified Nursing Assistant, or CNA, is a healthcare professional who provides basic patient care and assists nurses and other healthcare personnel. CNAs are responsible for monitoring the physical condition of their patients, providing basic nursing care, and helping with activities of daily living, such as bathing and grooming.
AL nurses help care for residents of assisted living facilities. Residents usually include older adults but could also include younger adults with special needs. These residents maintain partial autonomy but might require assistance with some activities of daily living.
