Career Description

Nursing aides (STNA) provide hands-on care and perform routine tasks under the supervision of nursing and medical staff. They often help patients to eat, dress, and bathe. They also answer calls for help, deliver messages, serve meals, make beds, and tidy up rooms. Aides sometimes are responsible for taking a patient's temperature, pulse rate, respiration rate, or blood pressure. They also may help provide care to patients by helping them get out of bed and walk, escorting them to operating and examining rooms, or providing skin care. Aides also observe patients' physical, mental, and emotional conditions and report any change to the nursing or medical staff.

Nursing aides employed in nursing care facilities often are the principal caregivers and have more contact with residents than do other members of the staff. Because some residents may stay in a nursing care facility for months or even years, aides develop positive, caring relationships with their patients.

Career Outlook

Mean Hourly Wage: $11.46

Mean Annual Salary: $20,200 - $28,700

According to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, STNA jobs are expected to increase faster than the national average for all occupations through 2016. This increase in employment rates can be attributed to the current rise in the elderly population with additional job openings arising from the workers that decide to change career paths, careers or retire from the field completely.

Demand will be highest in nursing and residential care facilities than in hospitals, and growth will be especially strong in community care facilities for the elderly.
