Want an in-demand job? Become a CNA.

December 1, 2021

Even before COVID-19, the United States was facing a growing gap between the number of people who need care and the number of people qualified to provide it. That means employers are short-staffed and eager to hire new CNAs. 

Nursing assistant positions are some of the most in-demand jobs.

As the baby-boomer generation grows older, the demand for caregivers in the US is growing rapidly. The US Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts that the demand for nursing assistants and orderlies will increase by eight percent (much faster than the average growth rate for other jobs) between 2019 and 2029. There just aren’t enough CNAs to fill the need, which means employers are competing to hire.

Caregiving jobs are extremely stable.

Because of the high demand for CNAs, employers are eager to keep their caregivers satisfied in their jobs. This is not a field where you’ll ever need to worry about layoffs or downsizing. In fact, many CNAs find that employers offer raises, shift flexibility and benefits so that they can hire the best caregivers.

Career change is easy since there’s no prior experience required for CNA training.

NextStep offers tuition-free, no-experience-required CNA training with a guaranteed job offer after graduation, which makes caregiving one of the best career-change jobs as well. The only education that’s required is a high school diploma or GED.
