Nursing assistants interact directly with patients, providing for their most basic care. As a nursing assistant, you would aid patients with their everyday needs, hygiene, and activities, such as eating, bathing, getting dressed, and walking. You would also perform tasks like changing bed pans and linens, and you would provide basic medical care, such as checking patients’ vitals and giving them medication. As a nursing assistant, you could work anywhere from a hospital to a nursing home. Becoming a nursing assistant is a great way to have a career in the health industry without having to spend years pursuing a college degree.

The only requirements for becoming a nursing assistant are completing an eight- to ten-week program at a community college or vocational school and passing a certification exam at the end of the program. A few schools require slightly longer programs, but these still tend to be shorter than three months. Because the programs are so brief, it is much less expensive to become a nursing assistant than to pursue an associate’s or bachelor’s degree.
