Certified Nurse Aides (CNAs) play a vital role in healthcare delivery by providing routine patient care.  Working under the supervision of a nurse, CNAs perform vital patient measurements, including temperatures, pulses, and blood pressures.  CNAs have direct patient contact assisting with daily activities, such as, bathing, walking, and eating.
