Certified Nursing Assistants
A certified nursing assistant job description includes wearing many hats. The main role
of a certified nursing assistant (CNA) is to provide basic care to patients, as well as assisting
residents with daily activities. Some of these activities include bathing, toileting, dressing,
feeding, transfers from bed to mobility device, etc. Because of the personal and intimate nature
of the job, a certified nursing assistant must have excellent interpersonal skills, the ability to be
compassionate, and CNAs must enjoy helping others. Our nursing assistants share smiles, tears,
and sweat while maintaining dignity and recognizing the contributions of residents who have
made our world a better place. Because of their care, they make the world a better place for our
residents. For all these and many more reasons, we CELEBRATE our nursing assistants and
recognize they are the backbone of Woodland Village Nursing Center! Thanks for all you do!
