Every year all over the United States, we dedicate a week in June to appreciate and honor Certified Nursing Assistants. This year, the 40th Annual National Nursing Assistants Week is June 15-22, 2017 and the National Career Nursing Assistants Day is June 15, 2017.
More than 2.5 million nursing assistants are employed helping the elderly, frail, or chronically challenged persons who live in nursing homes, their own homes, and other long-term care settings. CNAs provide nearly 80 to 90 percent of the direct care received by clients in long-term care facilities.
This week 15-22 is set aside this year in June to recognize the CNAs who have devoted their lives to the welfare of others. Not only do they play a significant role in the healthcare field by providing direct patient care, they are the front line of patient care and are vital to daily operations in hospitals and nursing care facilities.
