NATIONAL CAREER NURSE ASSISTANTS DAY
Always on the first day of National Nursing Assistants Week, it is 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.
On this day, we want to THANK these people for the wonderful job that they do and the very special care that they give to those in need.
