Nursing assistants are unlicensed assistive personnel (UAP) who provide bedside care and some basic nursing procedures for the chronically sick, elderly, and rehabilitation patients in a hospital or nursing facility. This is typically done under the supervision of licensed practical or registered nurses. It is the most junior role in the nursing profession and only requires the completion of a brief eight- to ten-week-long certificate program.
