The economic downturn in the United States is one of the primary reasons for the unemployment crisis in the country. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) employment chart, all 50 states of US and Puerto Rico are passing through job catastrophe. The unemployment rate of these states ranges more than 4% to 9.6%. The situation is more severe in the states of California, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico and North Carolina, where unemployment rate has risen to above 9%, and the condition is more alarming and harsh in Puerto Rico, where it has reached 14.5% in Feb 2013.In such employment crisis, CNA Jobs have come up as a saviour because there are abundant nursing aide careers throughout the country because certified nursing assistants are trained through CNA Classes for offering direct patient cares. Their demand is exceptionally high in hospitals, nursing homes, private and public clinics and at the homes of patients. Their assistance is also greatly valued by LPNs, RNs, physicians, surgeons and other health care professionals in facilities because they assist these medical professionals carry out their duties smoothly.In addition, they spend most of their time with patients or residents and offer Personal and Basic Nursing care to them. They are also the first person to find changes in the conditions of patients and report these changes to registered nurses under whom they perform. Also, the increasing old age population cannot hope to take care of themselves with their ADL and other daily routine without the support of nursing assistants at their homes or nursing homes.However, it will not be wrong to say that the nursing aide jobs are terribly arduous, and when executing their duties, they also perform many unpleasant and injury prone duties. They frequently come into contacts with patients, who are infected with contagious and infectious diseases, and there is also higher risk of for them to get inflicted by such diseases. Again, their injury prone duties such as moving patients, transferring patients to and from bed, stretcher or wheel chairs, and repositioning patients and residents, may give them back or other types of physical injuries.The result of such physical demanding duties easily ends in strain, depression and stresses for nursing assistants. The meagre salary paid to them also does not allow them to take proper medical treatments for their infections, injuries and emotional, mental and physical traumas. These are also the main reasons for the continuous failing health of CNAs.There is also a significant difference between CNA Salary and duties performed by them. The salaries paid to them are insignificant to what they perform in variety health care settings and their duty hours. They are paid around 60% lower than all posted occupations. The approximate salary of $14,000 to $35,000, or per hour wage of $12 to $17 is not even sufficient for their bare survival and meeting their basic family costs.All these issues of strenuous, physical demanding and safety related duties of CNAs need urgent and immediate attention from the both state and federal governments, and they must formulate laws to improve the working conditions and environment, minimum wages and overtime wage of nursing assistants. In addition, they must also be provided with health Benefits, medical and life insurances, and retirement plans to meet their health and injury problems, and for safeguarding their future. The facility owners must also take these actions immediately to halt the exodus of nursing aides and home health aides from facilities and home care services.Unless, these problems are not immediately taken care of, it would be exceedingly difficult to cope with the present time nursing shortages, and CNAs will continue leaving their jobs for employments elsewhere.
