CNA is a certified nursing assistant, they have taken a class and ahve a state license. NA has no certification. Some places require them to be CNA's, some are fine with them being NA's/ another hospital here calls them TA's (technical assistants) and some places call them PCT's (patient care tech's)

hope this helps
