Certified Nursing Assistants are an integral part of our Riverside nursing team. CNAs help us deliver our mission of caring for others as would care for those we love. We offer a range of opportunities in many settings, including hospitals, nursing homes and home health. CNAs at Riverside also have nearly unlimited potential to grow professionally. In fact, many of our nursing leaders started out as nursing assistants. If you want to reach your highest potential, consider joining our team at Riverside.


Advancement opportunities

Riverside is committed to helping team members further themselves professionally. Every year, about 40 percent of our open positions are filled by our own team, which demonstrates the potential for advancement. We support and encourage lifelong learning and advanced education. All full- and part-time team members are eligible for educational assistance through up-front tuition reimbursement from day one. In addition:

  • We have a CNA Clinical Ladder program, a unique offering among health care systems. This provides CNAs with avenues for professional development that may not be likely other places.
  • Our own Riverside College of Health Careers offers many opportunities for CNAs to enhance their skills.
