happy senior patient with friendly female nurse

June 14 – 21, 2018 is National Nursing Assistant’s Week

Nursing assistants are key players in the lives of the people in their care and each nursing assistant is called to create an environment of caring for the elder and the worker as well. This week provides an opportunity to foster and showcase the wonderful things that can happen for residents and workers when we all come together.

The nationwide observance of Nursing Assistant’s Week provides many opportunities to recognize and validate the role of the nursing assistant in the healthcare system. Public recognition of nursing assistants provides a valuable service, not only for making nursing assistants more visible, but also, to lessen the concern by family members when a loved one is in need of special care.

We will share uplifting stories each day, via social media, celebrating elders across Kansas, Nebraska, North Dakota and South Dakota.
