High replacement needs for nursing and psychiatric aides reflect modest entry requirements, low pay, high physical and emotional demands, and limited opportunities for advancement within the occupation. For these same reasons, the number of people looking to enter the occupation will be limited while many CNAs leave the occupation to attend training programs for other healthcare occupations. Therefore, people who are interested in, and suited for this work should have excellent job opportunities. You can also read the section on turnover (starting on page 9) in this report.
