CNA work is not going anywhere. This is one of the best jobs to get into now-a-days. If you are worried about job stability, then get into the nursing career or some other field within the health care industry. The nursing profession on it’s own is growing in leaps and bounds. There are two main reasons for this growth which we will discuss below, but many others that effect it as well.
Medical advances are always abounding in this field. With time, we have seen such advances that could never have been dreamed about in the past number of years. With medical advances there comes a need for health care help, such as CNAs. This allows more advances to continue by freeing up time of the health care professionals that are needed to conduct the research. As well, medical advances provide more work for people such as CNAs in perhaps making additional tasks that contribute to the well-being of the patient.
We have an aging population. The human lifespan has increased over time, most especially due to medical advances, education about proper diet and nutrition, irradication of certain diseases, etc. With this aging population, comes new issues in health care that must be dealt with. Not only are the number of residents increasing at nursing homes, but at hospitals we are finding more people that are aged and requiring treatment. CNAs of course contribute to the well-being of health care for all of these patients and are needed more and more as time progresses.
CNA nursing assistant jobs will never be replaced by machines. Human to human contact is extremely important when dealing with human life or death. People are less likely to accept a machine doing this type of work than a real live human being. Humans provide compassion and empathy and are smart enough to realize cause and effect as well as are able to provide critical thinking when carrying out their daily tasks. Machines are not able to do this for us.
So if you are looking for a good stable career to get into CNA work is probably one of the best ones to look into.
