Certified Nursing Assistants help patients with their daily living activities and healthcare needs. CNAs work in hospitals, nursing homes, and patients’ homes. They make sure that the patients are fed, clean, dressed, and use the bathroom as needed. Sometimes patients can’t do these things themselves, so the CNAs do it for them. They even change diapers for the ones who can’t get up and go. CNAs must have a high school diploma or GED, complete CNA training, complete in-person clinical requirements, and pass a state exam. Some high schools in North Carolina offer programs that allow students to complete requirements and get certified when they graduate. The average salary for a CNA is $28,450 per year.
