Anyone who is motivated to make a difference in other people's lives and earn a good salary may want to consider a career as a CNA. Certified nursing assistants use their knowledge and communication skills to educate people about better preventative practices as well as supporting the function of doctors and nurses on a daily basis. CNA classes provide students with a working knowledge of medical terminology that is used in health care settings, as well as basic skills for working with medical technology and dealing with patients.
