The Mission of NAHCA

The National Association of Health Care Assistants mission is to elevate the professional standing and performance of a cna and other caregivers through recognition, advocacy, education and empowerment while building a strong alliance with health care providers to maximize success and quality patient care.

With these beliefs in mind, the Co-Founders set out to establish the CNA association.

Their intent is to:

  1. Enhance quality of life and care for frail, elderly and disabled people.
  2. Enhance the professional standing of Certified Nursing Assistants and other similarly credentialed caregivers through; recognition, education, advocacy and motivation.
  3. Form strong relationship with the other professionals within the long term care system.




Nursing Assistants provide over 90% of the direct patient care and make up the largest group of employees working in health care facilities today.
