CNA Employment Outlook:

Overall employment of nurse aides and orderlies is projected to grow 4 percent from 2022 to 2032, about as fast as the average for all occupations. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, much faster than the average for all occupations. As the baby-boom population ages, the overall need for healthcare services is expected to increase. About 209,400 openings for nurse aides and orderlies are projected each year, on average, over the decade. Many of those openings are expected to result from the need to replace workers who transfer to different occupations or exit the labor force, such as retirement.

CNA’s are employed in hospitals, medical offices, private health care facilities, Alzheimer and mental health facilities, nursing homes, rehabilitation, and independent living centers, assisted living facilities dialysis centers, clinics, home care agencies, private duty, schools, or detention and prison facilities.


In order to qualify for licensure, CNAs must also pass a background screening (in accordance with Sections 435.04, 435.07, and 408.809, FS) for employment with an Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA) regulated facility (or qualify for an Exemption from Disqualification).

For Felony Disqualifying Offenses (regardless of adjudication), you would not be eligible for an Exemption until 3 years have passed since the completion of any non-monetary obligations (confinement, probation, community service, etc.). All fines, fees, restitution, etc. must also be paid in full.
