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