A restorative nurse's aide is a certified nursing assistant (CNA) who has additional, specialized training in restorative nursing care. A restorative nurse's aide (RNA) helps patients gain an improved quality of life by increasing their level of strength and mobility. Restorative nurse's aides generally earn more money than certified nursing assistants. They often work in assisted living communities, hospital therapy departments, adult day care centers, long-term care facilities, rehabilitation centers and home health agencies.


Enroll in a Nursing Assistant course. Courses are available at community colleges and vocational schools. Some long-term care facilities also offer training. Although specific licensing requirements vary from state to state, programs typically consist of classroom training followed by clinical training in a health care facility. When training is complete, students are required to pass a licensing exam.


Acquire a job as a Certified Nurse's Aide. Although requirements vary, many RNA programs require that potential students hold a high school diploma, as well as six months experience as a CNA, before beginning RNA training.


Acquire Restorative Nurse's Aide training. Requirements for becoming a RNA vary considerably from state to state, but generally, training is available at vocational schools and community colleges. Some nursing facilities might provide training as well, though it is usually administered through an approved school or agency and taught by a registered nurse or physical therapist.


Create a resume. List your education, certification, work experience and professional skills, as well as two or three professional recommendations.


Search employment ads online and in medical publications for available RNA position in healthcare facilities such as long-term care facilities, Alzheimer's units, hospice agencies and hospitals. Network with former instructors and fellow students to learn about possible open positions. Apply for jobs that fit your work experience and professional needs.
