Certified Nursing Assistants
Within the Riverside Health System, Certified Nurse Assistants are very valued members of the nursing family. They are among the most important people on the medical team because they make sure patients receive the day-to-day attention they need to get well and live comfortably while they are hospitalized or living in lifelong care centers.
In addition to taking care of a patient's personal needs on a daily basis, CNAs keep living conditions safe and clean; record, measure and report vital signs; help move and transport patients; assist nurses and doctors; and communicate with the patients and healthcare teams.
CNAs can work in a variety of environments, including acute care, rehabilitation, home health and lifelong care.
At Riverside, we are looking for CNAs, who are:
- Certified as a CNA in the Commonwealth of Virginia.
- Passionate about providing quality day-to-day care for patients of all ages.
- Dedicated to working closely with the health care team.
- Family oriented.
- Concerned about the well-being and comfort of others.
Our CNAs are always encouraged to enhance their skills through our School of Health Careers, so they can advance to higher levels of nursing care.
