Honoring Nursing Assistants Everywhere!

May 5th, 2014 by Linda Leekley in For CNAs, Honoring CNAs
It is our pleasure to announce and lend our support to National Nursing Assistants’ Week.  Genevieve Gibson, the Director of the National Network of Career Nursing Assistants, provided us with the following information:
The 37th annual National Nursing Assistants’ Week recognizes the unique contributions of nursing assistants and other direct care workers who provide daily care in nursing homes, home care, and other long-term care settings.  Here are some facts about the upcoming NA Week:
  • NA Week 2014 begins on June 12th, Career Nursing Assistants Day, and continues through June 19, 2014.
  • Each day of NA Week focuses on a different aspect of the slogan, “Nursing Assistants@the Heart of Caring.”
  • Career Nursing Assistants Day honors “Stayers,” those NAs eligible for the National Honor Society for Nursing Assistants or those who have remained in caring positions for extended periods of time.
  • Projects and programs planned for this week focus on respect, encouragement, listening, contracting , partnering  and other soft skills required for Person-Centered Care.

Congratulations to CNAs Everywhere!

June 10th, 2010 by Linda Leekley in Uncategorized

Every June, nursing assistants are honored for one week during National CNA Week.  Today is the first day of CNA Week 2010.  So, congratulations to CNAs (and other direct care workers) everywhere!

Of course, at Just for Nursing Assistants, we prefer to honor CNAs every day!  It is our mission to spread the word about the importance of the nursing assistant role…and, as a result, help to promote fair pay and increased benefits for direct care workers.  Right now, about one third of all direct care workers have no health insurance themselves.  How can we let that continue?

So, thanks to everyone who has already contributed a message to Just for Nursing Assistants.  The more voices heard, the better!  And a HUGE thank you to all the dedicated CNAs across the U.S. and beyond.  Enjoy your CNA Week…but please remember that we are here for you all year long!
