New Inservice Topic Just Added!

Did you know that the average load of dirty laundry contains 100 million E. coli bacteria?  And, studies have found that more than 60 percent of washing machines are contaminated with fecal matter.  Do these numbers surprise you?  Check out our newest inservice addition to Just for CNAs: "Infection Control in Home Care" to find out how you can keep your clients safe from harmful bacteria. 

This topic is filled with tips about common infection control challenges faced by home health aides... just like you.  It also includes information on disinfecting surfaces, doing laundry, "sharps" disposal, household pests and food safety. You'll also find dozens of tips for keeping clients' homes as germ-free as possible.


Today is the first day of CNA Week...so congratulations and a BIG thank you to CNAs everywhere! 

However, at Just for CNAs, we like to honor nursing assistants every day--not just for one week a year.  That's why we created the Just for Nursing Assistants website, a place where people from all walks of life can express their gratitude to you.  At the same time, the website brings some much needed attention to how important your role is to nursing, to health care and to the community.  read more »

People Are Talking about You!

Did you know that people are talking about you?  It's true!  People from all over the U.S. are speaking their minds about nursing assistants.  They are sharing their thoughts about how hard you work, how much they appreciate you and much, much more.

Who's doing all this talking?  Your co-workers...nurses and other nursing assistants.  Politicians...governors and senators.  And, celebrities...a diverse group including Mary Murphy (from So You Think You Can Dance), Dr. Patch Adams and actress Jane Fonda.

Where can you read their comments?  Visit Just for Nursing Assistants.  While you're there, please consider leaving some comments of your own.  For example, what would you say to a CNA who feels discouraged?  Or, what would you say to someone who is thinking about becoming a CNA?  You may add your thoughts here.

Thanks again to CNAs everywhere...and we hope you enjoy your new site, Just for Nursing Assistants.

Thank you to CNAs Everywhere!
