Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs) play a vital role in providing quality patient care. CNAs are often the unsung heroes who ensure that patients receive the attention, support, and comfort they need during challenging times.
Healthcare organizations looking to hire great CNAs who provide top patient outcomes should look for: healthcare experience, soft skills, such as teamwork (FYI- here are some great questions to ask to find your ideal team player), and a great bedside manner.
Use these interview questions as a guide on what to ask your certified nursing assistant candidates. You can also use AI interview question assist (if you’re currently using interviewstream) to help you craft position and industry-specific questions. Also, consider using video interviews to ask specific screening questions. Hospitals like Johns Hopkins use on demand interviews to move candidates forward the hiring process faster than they could with manual screening methods, like a phone screen.
In the healthcare industry, the quality of care provided to patients is of utmost importance, and CNAs are essential in ensuring this. Asking the right interview questions means you’ll be confident your newly hired Certified Nursing Assistants can navigate complex and often unpredictable situations and make informed decisions for their patients’ well-being.
