National Career Nurse Assistants’ Day
Every year on the first day of National Nursing Assistants’ Week, we observe National Career Nurse Assistants’ Day.This day is set aside to recognize the nursing assistants who dedicate their lives to the well-being of others for 5 to as many as 58 years.
Nursing assistants many times work in hospitals and nursing homes performing everyday living tasks for the elderly, chronically ill or rehabilitation patients who cannot care for themselves.A more in-depth training and qualification that covers a wider scope of responsibility is indicated by government certification.The state distributes these certification exams, and the classes to study for them are offered by the American Red Cross as well as other providers.
HOW TO OBSERVE
On National Career Nurse Assistants’ Day take a moment to thank a CNA for all they do.Use #CareerNurseAssistantsDay to share on social media.
