Celebrating and Thanking CNAs during National CNA Week
The frontline of nursing, the eyes and ears of nursing facilities and angels in scrubs. Who are we? We are certified nursing assistants. Just as the title suggests, we give assistance to nurses. We are the ones that devote the vast majority of our time with your loved ones.
CNAs are very busy individuals who carry out over 90% of care for residents. We provide emotional support, often forming relationships. Its not an easy job. It requires lots of patience, dedication and compassion for people. CNAs deserve recognition for all they do everyday, not just during national nursing assistant week.
How do you honor nursing assistants? How will you celebrate the week? Do you know of any great CNAs that deserve a shout out! 4CNAs invite you to share you stories on our facebook page.
On Behalf of 4CNAs, I’d like to thank all the certified nursing assistants across the country for all the hard work, dedication and care you provide.
The Certified Nurse Assistant Prayer
As I enter into my place of calling
I ask for strength as I help those in needing
Hide my tears for the sick and aging
and let my smile be the hope they're seeking.
Guide my hands as they do for them
The things they cannot do, and we take for granted
Allow my eyes to see those things
that make my stay with them a blessing
Provide the words I need to speak
To let them know I love them so.
As I do my work throughout the day
It is for my residents that I stay,
and for my residents that I pray
Let me dedicate my life today
to the care of those who come my way
Let me touch each one with healing
hand and the gentle art for which I stand.
And then tonight when the day is done
O let me rest in peace if I helped just one
