Effects of an advanced nursing assistant education program

Effects of an advanced nursing assistant education program on job satisfaction, turnover rate, and clinical outcomes


Describes the effects of a advance-training intervention for certified nursing assistants (CNAs) working at the ProMedica health care system in Ohio. The authors found that CNAs were excited about the opportunity to receive advanced training, and that turnover significantly decreased following the intervention. Several clinical outcomes improved, especially the incidence of urinary tract infections. However, job satisfaction for CNAs did not increase in a statistically significant way.
