M State offers a Nursing Assistant course at each campus location. (Nursing assistants are also referred to as nurse aides.) Students who complete the Nursing Assistant course and pass a registry exam are Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs).
Working closely with patients, CNAs are responsible for basic care services such as bathing, grooming and feeding patients, assisting nurses with medical equipment and checking patient vital signs. CNAs give patients important social and emotional support and also provide vital information on patient conditions to nurses.
