Question:

As the CNA, in assessing your patients, what is your primary role?

A The CNA’s primary role is to assist the nurse with physical data such as weight, height, vital signs, food/fluid intake and output.
Explaination

Reporting physical data and observations to the nurse in charge is the CNA’s primary role in patient assessment. The nurse is a member of the patient’s healthcare team that makes the full assessment and then advises the patient’s treating physician.  The other options above are wrong.
