Nursing is a very popular field to go into, and there are many options within nursing. A CNA job is a popular option for most people. But what does someone with a CNA job do? Keep reading to find out.
Let’s start with what the CNA job is. People with a CNA job are certified nursing assistants and usually work in residences or hospitals.

Working a CNA job in a hospital is a little different than in a residence. In the hospital, CNAs will bring the blood, stool, or urine samples to the lab, pick up non-narcotic drugs from the pharmacy, and restock shelves as needed.
