What Is the Role of a Nursing Assistant?
While many people are familiar with the role nurses play in patient care, some may ask, “What is a nursing assistant?” Nursing assistants can be found wherever there is a need for personal patient care. Also known as nursing aides, these professionals perform basic day-to-day tasks to support the entire medical team in properly caring for ill, injured or disabled people.

At most facilities, nursing assistants work under the supervision of a registered nurse (RN), licensed practical nurse (LPN) or other medical staff. Qualified nursing assistants are relied upon to provide basic care, which frees up RNs and LPNs to perform more complex tasks and procedures that may require advanced training.

Nursing assistant job duties vary, but typically involve a great deal of hands-on contact. These healthcare workers are often responsible for helping patients with basic functions such as dressing, bathing and eating. Nursing assistants may also help patients in and out of bed, take them for walks, help them into wheelchairs and assist them with exercises. Other nursing assistant duties might include taking and recording vital signs, monitoring nutrition and hydration and reporting changes in patients’ mental or physical condition to other members of the medical team.

The Nurse Assistant (NA) Program in Los Angeles prepares the student to function as an entry-level worker on a healthcare team. Focus will be on preparing the student to provide direct care to the patient/resident; promote comfort measures; and collect, record and report data to licensed personnel. Principles of critical thinking, team interaction, ethics, caring, communications and cultural sensitivity are integrated throughout the program. The program includes classroom, laboratory and clinical care experiences.
