Nursing roles
Certified nursing assistants (CNAs) improve patients’ quality of life by assisting them with everyday living tasks. To practice as a CNA in Michigan, one must complete a state-approved program and pass the state certification assessments. Licensed practical nurses (LPNs) also provide direct patient care in addition to administering medications and some medical procedures. They must pass the NCLEX-PN exam after completing an accredited program. Similarly, registered nurses (RNs) must pass the NCLEX-RN after graduating from an approved associate’s or bachelor’s degree program. They care for patients alongside physicians and can make some patient care decisions independently.
