Nurse Aide – NTNCI

A nurse aide (NA) (sometimes called direct care worker) is a very caring person who sees the purpose in his/her life being to help give patients/residents the care and assistance they need to be comfortable, safe, and in the best state of wellness they can be. These aides always work under the supervision of a licensed nurse. They can work in hospitals or nursing homes.

Some of the basic tasks they perform are: measuring and recording vital signs, bathing, assist in transporting residents in wheelchairs and ambulation with walkers and canes, and many more…

Aside from these tasks, the one fulfilling opportunity a nurse aide will always have is talking to and listening to the patient/resident. Pills and doctors do not always cure all ills, a listening ear and a hand to hold can often make a world of difference in someone’s day and life!
