Career Nurse Assistants Programs, Inchttp://www.cna-network.org
OUR MISSION We believe that the residents in nursing homes and other long-term care settings deserve courteous and appropriate care and a quality of life within the health care system. We further believe that the nursing assistant or direct care worker who provides 90% of this direct-care deserves realistic assignments, appropriate training and supervision, adequate compensation and benefits, career advancement opportunities, recognition of effort, and a work environment that provides the support and supplies needed in order to perform tasks of care. We will create a National Voice by, for and with nursing assistants and other direct care givers through programs of career development, recognition, education, research, networking and coalition building, peer support and advocacy for all nursing assistants in nursing homes, home care, and other long term care settings.
