In Iowa, the certified nursing assistants are front line nursing professionals who assist the registered nurses in nursing homes, hospitals and other clinical settings. They are responsible to provide with basic and direct patient care and facilitate the daily activities of the patients. Certified nursing assistants are registered under the state’s CNA registry. This registry is maintained by the Iowa DIA (Department of Inspections and Appeals); more specifically by Health Facilities Division.
For qualifying to practice nursing professionally, the prospective candidates have to get trained in all the nursing aspects and manual skills through a formal CNA program and then pass the state approved exam for getting a certificate and a license.
Training courses for certified nurse aides are offered by many schools, vocational technical schools, community colleges, medical facilities, nursing homes, health care institutions, etc. Most of them are approved by the state of Iowa, provided that they last for at least 75 hours.
