Nursing assistantAs we navigate a global pandemic, we continue to celebrate those in the healthcare industry. Those serving on the frontlines have provided stability in healthcare facilities nationwide and here in Kentucky.

Wherever there is a need for compassionate care, nursing assistants are there to provide it. Nursing assistants work in nursing homes, assisted living facilities, hospitals, rehabilitation centers and long-term care. 

Under the supervision of a licensed nurse, nursing assistants provide patients with help in daily tasks. Nursing assistants also provide support as they update nurses with vital information and keep them up-to-date on the well-being of their patients.

Becoming a nursing assistant is a great way to get your foot in the door if you want to work in healthcare as it provides you with valuable experience that can help you develop essential skills. A day in the life of a nursing assistant is full of variety as they are exposed to many different situations, circumstances, and people daily.
