Job Description for Licensed Nursing Assistant (LNA)

A licensed nursing assistant (LNA) is the preferred designation in some parts of the United States for certified nursing assistants (CNAs). Individuals in these positions perform the same functions; the difference in naming comes from the method by which a nursing assistant acquires legal standing to work in this field. Licensed nursing assistants handle many of the hands-on patient care duties in a hospital or clinic, such as helping patients with mobility issues to eat or dress. LNAs also assist nurses and doctors with taking blood samples and the routine monitoring of patient conditions.
