Learning Goal

Your role as a CNA will be tested on both the written and the skills part of the CNA State Exam. Understanding your role as a CNA is the most important aspect of CNA training – knowing HOW to do something is not beneficial if you don’t understand WHAT needs to be done and WHEN it needs to be done. CNAs follow the Care Plan, the Whole Care Plan and Nothing But the Care Plan. Put another way, CNAs perform routine tasks on stable patients according to the care plan!
