Nursing assistants are the ones who have a certification and have undergone a training program followed by a certification in the nursing assistant field. Now the question here arises that that what is the job of a nursing assistant, so let me answer that. Nursing assistant’s job is to help the nursing staff in the hospital. The job of nursing staff includes checking the blood pressure, taking pulse along with reading patients medical history and summarizing it to the doctor. Nursing assistants also helps the doctors in providing the patients with the basic treatments such as giving injections, tablets and different treatments for the basic health problems.

To carry this job, there are certain necessities and requirements which have to be practiced and known. These include abilities to lift up patients, communicating properly and nicely with people, taking care, mentoring and easing patients up, feeding and bathing them properly without hurting them and besides this some basic documentation work has to be known as well. Besides this, professionals also like and hire people who have a slight sense of humor in them which accounts for a cure to highly depressed people. Another thing which is required to be a nursing assistant is to have tolerance in you, as this profession requires a lot of tolerance and patients.

After knowing the requirements, you need to know where a nursing assistant can work. Nursing assistants get an option of working in several nursing homes, hospitals, with long term day care facilitators, and also serve some patients at home, who don’t have an ability to walk down to the hospitals and care centers to get them properly treated.

In order to work with professionals and several big organizations and hospitals you need to have a certification of nursing assistant. This can be taken by passing an exam of the nursing education after getting the training. It has been said that till date there are 569 programs that have been accredited by the commission of health. Besides this, you can also find numerous training programs on the internet as well.

There are two basic ways of getting the nursing certification.

• One way is to get an admission in a nursing school, which has to be reputed and with good ranking, take the entire nursing course and give the examination. The exam requires a full fledge and a deep understanding of nursing along with the practical work that is given in the institution. Once you take the course you get eligible for the exams

• The second way is to get yourself registered to the school, take the alumni from the school and prepare the course by your own. You can take home tuitions from several well known teachers and can then appear for the exam. Taking the course privately also requires the practical work. The practical work has to be done in an affiliated institution, which is mandatory to sit for the exam and hence get a certification by passing it.
