    CNA = certified nursing assistant

    CMA = certified medical assistant

    LVN/LPN = licensed vocational nurse/ licensed practical nurse -- depends on the region you live in

    I'm surprised that you don't know what OR and ER mean.....those are pretty basic, even the general public knows those.
