The Mission of NAHCA

The mission of the National Association of Health Care Assistants is to elevate the professional standing and performance of 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.

Do you believe it takes a special person to be a CNA, Assisted Living Caregiver, Hospice CNA, Nurse Tech, or other caregivers? NAHCA does!

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