If you enjoy caring for others, then pursuing a career as a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) may be right for you. The care CNAs provide makes a big difference to residents and their loved ones.

Vincentian is offering employees free paid training to become a Certified Nursing Assistant. The four-week program begins June 8. Current employees are eligible for a $3,000 bonus when they pass the certification exam and sign-on for a full-time position. If you have an interest in this or another position within Vincentian, please reach out to your People Operations and Engagement specialist for more information.

CNAs work under the supervision of registered nurses (RNs) and licensed practical nurses (LPNs), performing entry-level resident care tasks. Roles revolve around the residents’ day-to-day needs with job duties that include:

  • Assisting residents with dressing;
  • Repositioning residents in bed and transferring them to wheelchairs;
  • Taking vital signs and recording health issues; and
  • Serving meals and assisting residents with eating.

CNAs are not required to hold a college degree, but they are required to undergo specialized training before caring for residents.
