Celebrate CNA Week Toolkit

The last two years mark an incredible moment in history for CNAs, who have had an incredibly positive impact on older adults and those who work in and manage nursing homes, assisted living communities, and in home care.

This toolkit is designed for all providers to use in celebrating their healthcare heroes via social media and throughout their centers.

The CNA Association

There are many benefits to being a member of the National Association of Health Care Assistants (NAHCA). As the CNA Association, we stand together to demonstrate our professional pride and advocate for policies and practices that advance certified nursing assistants in their careers as well as their personal lives. NAHCA members represent nursing homes, assisted living, home care, hospice, and even hospital care. We have a large number of CNA members nationwide.

Make Your Voice Heard!

Contact your representative and make your voice heard. We make it easy with a range of tools that summarize the issues, provide sample letters and help you contact your members of Congress. Your work as an advocate is crucial to motivating legislators and other policymakers.
