    Hello guys,

    Certified nursing assistant assists in the basic human needs of the healthcare profession. They may help to bathe patients, feed them, change diapers or beds, empty bedpans, and help patients to bathroom or toileting facilities. They are also trained to take vitals, which are measurements of pulse, blood pressure, and respiration, and are responsible for charting vitals several times during each shift. The nursing assistant also needs to be fully aware of any changes in vitals, and any significant changes in a patient’s condition, and report such to the nursing staff.

    With regards

    There is nothing wrong with that. You are an imrnatpot aspect of the health care team and the team could not do without you. You are probably more of a people person, more caring, and you want to be more hands on with the patients/residents as opposed to performing nursing tasks. I commend you. If you are happy with what you are doing, stick with it. Many people search an entire life time for a job that they truly love and you are lucky to have found that for yourself. Good luck!
