美国CNA助理护士课程与考试

May 15, 2018

庆祝最新一期CNA学生顺利毕业,May 2018

 

 

美国人口老龄化严重,护理人员紧缺,自2000年以来,65岁以上人口就一直处于与稳步增长状态。数据显示,每年约有50万人加入“65岁+大家庭”。根据美国统计局预测:2030年,美国65岁以上老人将占总人口的20%左右。美国护士年均缺口达12万,预计到2020年美国护士的短缺量将超过50万人。美国过去十年为了解决护士荒问题,一直都在通过移民政策增加移民护士的配额,加速的引进外籍的护士。几年前,美国国会就曾经修改法律,每年增加5万人的移民护士的配额,目前在美国从事护理工作的印度人、菲律宾人、香港人、台湾人很多,他们的主要优势是英语较好。近年来更多的医疗护理机构将眼光投向中国大陆,中国护士的优势在于基本上都是通过专业的护理学校的训练,业务和技术熟练,但明显的短板是英语程度相对差,而护理工作如果无法与病人的和老人有效沟通,显然就无法胜任。

 

什么是CNA?

 

CNA 全称是Certified Nursing Assistant,当于中国医院里的护理员,培训内容包括:怎样测量病人生命体征,初浅的一些解剖,生理,感染,营养的理论。工作主要为照顾患者的个人生活和提供住院护理,比如洗澡、更换床单、测量生命体征、协助护士做简单的伤口包扎等。美国助理护士需要通过专业培训,包括理论课程和临床实践以及考试获得证书,在注册护士的指导下进行工作。有些医院的CNA还兼职一些秘书的功能,帮忙在电脑上输入实验室ORDER,接接电话,发发传真等。
