"Nursing Assistants: Specialists in the Art of Caring"

Celebrating 40 years as a professional organization for nursing assistants and

other direct care workers in long term care.

~ Discuss "What's your @?" .

~ Attend or conduct classes to decrease worker in juries on the job.

~ Talk to a legislator or public official about safe lifting or needs of NAs.

~ Submit an essay, poem or song to the NA Authors Club.

~ Host an Honor Society Meeting in your faculty for your NAs who have 20 or more years of service.
