Long-Term Health Care Professionals

If you are interested in improving the quality of life for our most vulnerable citizens, then long-term care may be the health care setting for you. Long-term care refers to health services provided to chronically ill, aged, or disabled patients on a continuing and lengthy basis. Care typically takes place in nursing facilities, assisted living residences, and homes for individuals with specific mental retardation or developmental disabilities.

The most common health care occupations found in long term care are that of the Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA), the Licensed Practical Nurse, and the Registered Nurse. Some facilities also employ Resident Assistants, who provide direct personal care services to residents but are not certified as CNAs, and Qualified Medical Assistants, who may assist with the administration of medications and treatments.
