This program prepares the student to provide basic patient care under the supervision of a licensed nurse. Once completed the student will be eligible to take the state exam to be certified as a Nursing Assistant (CNA). Employment opportunities for CNA’s primarily include hospitals, home care and long-term care facilities.
Overall employment of nursing assistants and orderlies is projected to grow 5 percent from 2021 to 2031, about as fast as the average for all occupations.
About 220,200 openings for nursing assistants and orderlies are projected each year, on average, over the decade. Many of those openings are expected to result from the need to replace workers who transfer to different occupations or exit the labor force, such as to retire.
