CAN Training @ Knowledge Point Institute will lead to an International certification, which is accredited by GAQM (Global Association of Quality Management) A certified nursing assistant, or CNA, helps patients or clients with healthcare needs under the supervision of a Registered Nurse (RN) or a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN).

Each state also has its own scope of practice for CNA’s and its own code of ethics.   Nursing assistants fulfill basic quality-of-life needs for patients of any age in residential nursing care facilities or outpatient clinics. Since nursing assistants have daily contact with patients, they are gatherers of vital information about the patients’ conditions, which they must then transmit to their supervisors.

In many cases, CNA’s serve as the RNs or LPNs eyes and ears, and relays information between many patients and nurses. CNA’s are typically responsible for the general care of their patients. Duties will vary, depending on the specific needs of the patient.
