Hawaii is one of the states with the oldest population. Because of this, there is a steady rise of demand for chronic care and rehabilitation. If you live in Hawaii, this might be the perfect start to stabilize your future and career! It is impossible to run out with options as every hospital, clinic, and nursing homes will always need a dedicated and skilled team of healthcare workers to provide quality patient care.
What is a CNA?
A health care team is composed of individuals with a variety of knowledge and skills all critical to provide holistic care for all people of walks of life. Being a certified nursing assistant (CNA) is one of these rewarding careers. If you find fulfilment in rendering physical and emotional care, this is the perfect career to pursue! Make a difference in the lives of the people that you will work with.
Under the supervision of a nursing staff, CNAs are tasked to provide basic patient car. They help those who are sick, disabled, or injured with their activities of daily living like feeding, grooming, and bathing. They also play a vital role in keeping healthy people well by providing health education. The job is physically demanding and would also involve assistance in patient transport. As much as it is fast-paced and exciting, it will also slow you down and make you more human.
Of course, it’s no longer just skill competency that is the focus of nursing assistant education. As the industry is ever changing, CNAs are also trained to possess compassion, therapeutic communication, and critical thinking skills needed to provide competent care.
If you wanna take on this path, Hawaii has several certification, associate degree, and bachelor degree programs for this with a number of financial supports on the side as well. As this is the fastest growing industry, you might want to consider being in the healthcare and social assistance field.
