CNA-HHA-Skills-Supine-Position

One of the skills that you will learn during your CNA training is how to place your clients in the supine position. The supine position is a position of the body: lying with the face up. 

In Nurse Aide Classes you will learn that the resident should be placed lying on their back, with their face up, arms to the side and legs slightly apart from one another.  Pillows are placed in order to support the back and neck of the patient to promote greater comfort. 

State Certified Nursing Assistant training regulations help ensure that prospective CNAs are equipped with the proper training and skills necessary to successfully complete a state-administered certification exam.
