Unlicensed assistive personnel

Unlicensed assistive personnel (UAP) is a class of paraprofessionals who assist individuals with physical disabilities, mental impairments, and other health care needs with their activities of daily living (ADLs) and provide bedside care—including basic nursing procedures—all under the supervision of a registered nurse, licensed practical nurse or other health care professional. UAPs must demonstrate their abilities and competencies before gaining any expanded responsibilities within the clinical setting.

CNA stands for "Certified Nursing Assistant". To become a CNA 75 hours of training is required. A CNA has one of the most active jobs within a facility, whether it be a assisted living facility, hospital, in home care or rehabilitation unit. Why? Because the CNA has the most contact with the resident/ patient at all times! A CNA's job ranges from: making/changing bed sheets, assisting restroom use, changing briefs, feeding/ delivering food, transporting with wheelchairs, checking vital signs, grooming and hygine of the patient/resident, visiting, charting, answering call lights and keeping up with yourself as well. A great job for those who enjoy helping others live thier lives:)
