Benefits of CNA Membership

There are many CNA member benefits with the National Association of Health Care Assistants (NAHCA). As a CNA association, we stand together to demonstrate our professional pride; and we are changing the public perception of health care facilities such as nursing homes and hospitals, and the CNA and other caregivers who work in them. We have a large number of CNA members nationwide, which has gained the attention of many companies who have partnered with us to honor our members with great discounts on products and services! We work each and every day to improve both the personal and professional lives of our members. Certified Nursing Assistants deserve it, as well as Assisted Living Caregivers, Skilled Nursing Assistants, and others.

Learn more about the amazing benefits that we offer.

Slide Lori Porter - NAHCA Co-Founder, CEO Although I support this report, I have done so with reservations about the Workforce Ecosystem. Specifically, NAHCA supports government funded staffing requirements for CNAs in nursing homes. We recommend a ratio of one to 6 residents per CNA. We also support direct wage pass through for CNAs to move from a national average pay of $13.00 an hour to $16.00 with a pathway to $22.00 an hour. Nursing homes alone cannot fix this challenge.
