Many employers or nursing schools ask CNA or Nursing Assistant to provide a letter of recommendation from a previous employer.

Writing a letter of recommendation for a Certified Nursing Assistant looks like a boring task, but, being a supervisor you have to spare some time to write it. The best reference letters are both positive and sincere, which requires an individual touch.

The following sample letter of recommendation for certified nursing assistant shows what a good employer recommendation may look like.



Letter of Recommendation for CNA (Certified Nursing Assistant) 


July 20, 2015



This letter is my personal recommendation for Sara Chris, who have been working as a Certified Nursing Assistant at ABC Hospital for three years. Until just recently, I was Sara’s immediate supervisor for quite a few years. I found her to be constantly pleasant person who is able to tackle all assignments and patient care activities with devotion and a smile.

Besides being a friendly person, Sara is able to take control of emergency situation and ability to present creative ideas regarding healthcare and hygiene issues. She has developed several patient care plans for our hospital that resulted in increased patient satisfaction.

To be specific, she is very expert in answering signal lights to resolve patients’ needs, bathing/dressing patients, providing and collecting food trays, feeding to patients who require assistance, transporting patients and helping patients to walk. In addition, she is expert in taking vital signs.

Sara is a proven asset to our hospital, and have a potential to prove her capabilities anywhere she work. I highly recommend Sara for employment at your facility. I wish her best of luck in her future endeavors. In case of any query, I can be reached at the phone number or email address given below.
