CAREER NURSING ASSISTANTS DAY: June 11, 2015

The First Day of Nursing Assistants and Direct Care Workers Week–June 11, 2015–is designated as National Career Nursing Assistants’ Day to recognize nursing assistants who have dedicated their lives to the well-being of others for 5 to as many as 58 years.

These “Wisdom Keepers” © play an important role in showcasing “Partnerships ” because they are the “Historians of What Works.” They have developed a wide repertoire of skills and wisdom about how to apply principals of Person Centered care to daily tasks of care.
