can a CNA administer insulin?

NO....you should be a registered nurse.

A CNA is not taught to give injections, most places a LPN or RN has to do it. But in theroy, yes she can give insulin. When I was in the hospital they did not allow CNA's to give insulin injections If you have a CNA in your home, she can probably give it

A Certified Nursing Assistant (Nurse's Aide) is not allowed to administer insulin or any other medications. Only a Physician, Registered Nurse, or Licensed Practical Nurse should administer insulin injections. (Other than the patient themselves, once they are educated how to). The only exception would be in some home care settings where the CNA is permitted by the insurance/home health care place to 'help' the patient take their insulin. This case would also be if no Nurses were provided for home care treatment.


I work in an assisted living facility and the aids there are able to give insulin shots. they arent even cna's. however they cannot draw the insulin into the syringe. It is all based on the guidelines of the state and the facility.

No, not legally. Most states require you to be a Medical Assistant or a nurse.So in an institutional setting no. CNA's don't usually have the training on administering medications and injections.
This is from:http://en.allexperts.com/q/Careers-Nursing-1527/cna-duties.htm
CNA's can do techinal tasks such as vital signs, weights, blood pressures, EKG's once trained, but you may not administer medications nor vaccines as you are not licensed. You can even draw blood if the doctors train you. You can collect specimens too.
