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.

June 13th, 2013 by Linda Leekley in For CNAs, Honoring CNAs

This week, June 13th through June 19th, is the 36th Annual National Nursing Assistants Week.  It’s a great time to let direct care givers know how much they are appreciated!  That includes all the hardworking home health aides who take such good care of their clients–so that regardless of illness or age, they can stay in their own homes.  Take a moment to hear how Nancy, a home health aide, describes her work:

THANK YOU Nancy…and home health aides everywhere!!
