After becoming a certified nursing assistant, a student will find there are many different career paths to pursue.  These employment opportunities include hospitals, nursing homes, assisted living, memory care, medical offices and in home health. The number of jobs in this field is growing due to the number of people over the age of 70. In addition, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that jobs for nursing assistants will grow 9 percent by 2028. This is a much faster job growth than for other occupations; therefore, a great path for stable employment.
