"Nursing Assistants: Kindness In Action"

Celebrating 44 years as a professional organization for nursing assistants and other direct care workers in long term care.

You help us meet our goals for 2021 when you:

  • Practice using the language of Encouragement.

  •  Huddle with other team members to discuss tasks for today.

  • Talk to a legislator or public official about issues of staffing and consistent assignments.

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