National Nursing Assistants Week, June 13-19
Nursing Assistants have a rewarding profession; they can help patients and residents improve quality of life! Whether you are recovering from a hospital stay or living in a nursing facility nursing assistants are there to make a difference!
Nursing Assistants report vital signs, check on patients, help set up medical equipment, and transfer patients as necessary. They also help with daily tasks such as bathing, eating, and dressing patients.
The duties of a nursing assistant require dedication and a sincere desire to help others. It is important to recognize the time and effort nursing assistants put into their job.
To show your appreciation for a nursing assistant in your life, consider giving a thank you note or a letter. A simple gift such as candy, flowers, or a gift card can be a thoughtful gesture that shows that you care.
