Celebrate CNA Week Toolkit

This year, CNA Week 2022 is from June 16 to June 22. With the theme of “I’m Still Standing,” NAHCA created this toolkit for CNAs and for the skilled nursing centers, assisted living communities, and staffing and home health agencies they work for so that everyone can celebrate, recognize, and pay their respects to the incredible work that the nearly 1 million-strong contingent of frontline heroes does everyday for elders and people with disabilities.

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.

Here are six reasons why you should take action to ensure that the CNAs you know are celebrated during CNA Week:

  1. It’s another way to honor CNAs for their heroism during the pandemic and continued commitment to residents and patients.
  2. It demonstrates to residents, family members, and others that you care about staff. And when you care about staff, you care about the care they provide.
  3. It shows CNAs that you care about them, which helps to improve retention.
  4. Recognizing CNAs makes them happy, and happy CNAs stay in their jobs and provide better care to residents and patients.
  5. When you show the world you care about CNAs, it reflects a culture of caring and commitment.
  6. It demonstrates to other staff that you value people and care about the work they do.
