Services For The Elderly Population

There are many reasons to become a nursing assistant in California, but the most common reason is because of the growing Baby Boomer population.

They also take vital signs and provide assistance with personal hygiene.

The need for these professionals is rising, and there are many ways to get CNA training. A CNA can average $37,400 in 2022, which is a great compensation package. They are also entitled to overtime pay and full benefits. The aging Baby Boomer population is driving the growth in the need for health care workers.
