"Nursing Assistants: Kindness In Action"

Celebrating 43 years as a professional organization for nursing assistants and other direct care workers in long term care.

You help us meet our goals for 2020 when you:

~ Foster Positive Connections with and between residents.

~ 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.

~ Recognize your Nursing Assistants who have 20 or more years of service. Submit their names to the National Honor society for NAs.

~ Talk to your local church group or high school about being a NA.
