CNAs: Do You Feel Beaten Down, Belittled or Bullied at Work?

Is incivility at work making you sick? If so, you’re not alone. Chances are your workplace is infected! In fact, an epidemic of incivility has spread to most healthcare workplaces. Some episodes of incivility are easy to spot. For example, you may actually witness a co-worker yelling at or berating another—or you may be a victim of such behavior yourself. But, other forms of incivility are more subtle and difficult to pin down.  read more »

CNAs: What's Your Stress Level?

There's no doubt about it...working in the nursing field is stressful.  So, how is your stress level these days?  Try taking this quick little "Stress Test" (developed by clinical psychologist Dan Johnston) to see if you could use a little stress management.  

Remember...when stress becomes a way of life, it can lead to health problems--from tension headaches to heart attacks, ulcers and even cancer.  In fact, up to 75% of disease may be stress-related!

So, if the results of your Stress Test show that you could use some tips on how to reduce and/or manage your stress, consider completing our Stress Management Skills inservice.  It might be the best thing you do for your health this month!

Take good care,

Linda

HAPPY CNA WEEK!

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.
