The Pulse of the Profession
Welcome to the ShiftMed blog where we discuss everything nursing, from professional insights to healthcare holidays to helpful hints for working with us.
This year, National Career Nurse Assistants Day is June 16, 2022. This day marks the first day of National Nursing Assistants' Week, which celebrates the fantastic work and contributions CNAs make every day.
Nursing assistants play an essential role in the medical field. They provide primary patient care, help with daily activities, and emotional support.
For many individuals interested in joining the nursing field, becoming a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) is one of the initial steps. It's an ideal way to break into the medical sector, get experience and start earning income in a relatively faster and simpler way.
Are you interested in becoming a nurse but want to start working as soon as possible? Unfortunately, it takes four years to earn a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN), which may be too long for you to wait before working.
Suppose you work at a skilled nursing facility, nursing home, or hospital. In that case, you may be thinking about how to say thank you to your certified nursing assistants (CNAs) during National Nursing Assistants Week (June 17-24, 2021) or on National Career Nursing Assistants Day (June 17, 2021). More than 4.5 million caregivers care for our nation's frail, elderly, or chronically challenged citizens who stay in nursing homes and other long-term care settings. They add value to the lives of residents in their care.
