Celebrate CNA Week Toolkit

This year, CNA Week 2024 is from June 13th to June 19th. With the theme of “We’ll Be There For You” 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 four 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.

CNA Week: Webinars

Virtual trainings about topics that matter to our hero’s on the front lines of health care.

People may not remember everything you say, but they remember how your words made them feel. This program will talk about how microaggressions, a subtle and often unintentional form of prejudice or judgment, can hurt people and negatively impact your relationships with your colleagues, patients, family members, and friends. 

Don’t wait for others to advocate for you or cheer you on! Self-advocacy is the best way to let others know why and how you are an essential member of the care team. In this program, we’ll talk about how you can set and reach your professional goals and make sure others know how they can engage your skills and abilities to maximize quality care.
