CNAs Regularly Get Promoted in the Long Term Care Setting

The title of this piece says it all: certified nursing assistants, better known as CNAs, are often promoted to specialized, supervisory or lower management positions in the long term care setting. The varied positions that CNAs are promoted to generally come with alluring perks such as increases in pay, daytime work hours, some authority, chances for career mobility, and more desirable job duties and responsibilities.

So, what types of promotions can CNAs in the long term nursing facility setting receive? CNAs who start their careers in the long term care setting can be promoted into the roles of staffing coordinator, restorative nursing assistant, medical records clerk, shower aide, and central supply manager. These roles all entail some degree of autonomy and require the CNA to be a motivated self-starter with an eagerness to learn new things.

CNAs Can Be Staffing Coordinators

Staffing coordinators are utilized by both hospitals and nursing homes to be responsible for the smooth coordination of schedules and staffing by making sure all shifts at a healthcare facility are covered with adequate numbers of staff members. They closely work alongside nurse managers and supervisors to predict staffing needs and ensure the projected numbers of staff members will be available to cover shifts.

CNAs Can Be Restorative Nursing Assistants

A restorative nursing assistant, often called a restorative nurse aide, is a multi-skilled allied healthcare worker who is trained in the provision of restorative care tasks to patients under the supervision of a licensed nurse. A restorative nursing assistant delivers interventions and implements multiple therapies to patients as delegated to them by the nurse who oversees the nursing facility’s restorative nursing program.

CNAs Can Be Medical Records Clerks

A medical records clerk, sometimes known as a medical records technician, works to ensure patients and residents have accurate medical records. Duties involve assembly, processing, maintenance and proper storage of medical records in accordance with medical, administrative and and regulatory mandates to render them easily accessible between healthcare providers, insurance companies, and the rest of the facility staff.

CNAs Can Be Central Supply Managers

In the long term care setting, central supply managers are tasked with purchasing and obtaining supplies that are needed for patient care such as gloves, personal protective equipment, scales, mechanical lifts, beds, linens, mattresses and other medical supplies. A central supply manager stays in constant contact with vendors and suppliers, adheres to administrative budgets, rents equipment, and checks pricing prior to placing orders.

CNAs Can Be Shower Aides

A shower aide is responsible for the task of providing showers and/or baths, as well as other routine grooming care, to specifically assigned residents in the nursing facility setting. Shower aides typically help residents with personal hygiene and grooming. In addition, they sometimes assist with other daily care tasks for residents. They ensure residents receive showers and/or baths in accordance with predetermined schedules.

Do you want to be promoted into one of these healthcare roles one day in the near future? Become a CNA by enrolling in one of Legacy Healthcare Careers’ two-week nurse aide (CNA) training programs. If you are in the DFW area of Texas, call (682)626-5266 to get started.

Beware of Online CNA Classes

Due to today’s increasingly busy lifestyles, a lot of potential career-changers look for online coursework as a convenient way of transitioning into a new occupation or line of work. Moreover, healthcare career training seems to be popular with many busy folks who want to enroll in online courses. As an example, people want to become certified nursing assistants (CNAs), so they specifically seek out online CNA classes.

Nevertheless, here is a word of caution: a person cannot become a CNA online in most states. Let’s repeat that phrase using slightly different words: people are not legally permitted to become CNAs online in most US states. In fact, out of 50 states, Florida is the only one that allows students to skip the classroom and clinical externship associated with nurse aide training by challenging the state board to become CNAs.

Most online CNA programs advertised on the internet are flagrant scams designed to separate uninformed, unsuspecting and aspiring career-changers from hard-earned dollars. For instance, most states require at least 75 hours of face-to-face schooling in order to become a CNA. This 75 hours is normally built into a training program made up of 59 hours of class time and 16 hours of clinical externship at a nursing facility.

One glaringly obvious reason exists for face-to-face classroom and clinical training requirements in order to become a CNA: a person cannot learn how to properly take care of patients with online classes alone. In other words, students actually need to work with real patients at healthcare centers, touch them, talk, and interact with them while practicing basic nursing skills. These things can’t be accomplished online.

Direct hands-on care is the only tried-and-true method of learning to become a CNA. A person cannot learn how to provide direct patient care by simply reading online lessons and studying the lecture notes that come with a distance course. Learning to give basic nursing care involves a deliberate blend of seeing, doing and showing, and these methods can only be taught to nurse aide students in person in a face to face setting.

Most people’s lifestyles are really busy due to working, raising kids and managing other obligations that suck up more than enough time to fill our days with never-ending tasks. Thus, it is no surprise that many individuals search for online CNA classes out of a dire need for convenience. However, people cannot become CNAs totally online in the vast majority of states in the US. If it seems entirely too good to be true, maybe it is.

The truth hurts at times. Nonetheless, the getting the truth out there onto the center of the stage is necessary if reading or hearing realistic information saves people from being scammed out of their precious money. The cold, hard truth is that online CNA programs do not exist in most states, although a limited number of courses can be taken via online or distance formats in some areas. Forewarned is forearmed, so good luck.

People in the Dallas-Fort Worth area of Texas who are in need of nurse aide (CNA) training classes can call Legacy Healthcare Careers at (682)626-5266. Fast-track day, night and weekend CNA classes are offered here. Graduate in two weeks with a new career in the medical field.
