Just for CNAs: Tips for Managing Your Stress

Lifelong Learning Opportunities for CNAs

Whether you work as a CNA, a home health aide or a personal care aide, the internet offers some terrific options for nursing paraprofessionals who are looking to learn new things. However, it’s easy to get “lost” in cyberspace as you search for relevant information. Here are just a few sites that we feel have a lot to offer CNAs—and anyone who works in health care. (To visit any of the recommended sites, simply click the BLUE text.)

Nursing Assistant Resources on the Web

For ten years, three nursing assistants named Patti, Kim and Heather have worked diligently to create a central location for CNAs to access information on the web. They believe that “the more informed CNAs are, the better quality work they will produce.”

Don't Forget to Take Care of YOURSELF, Too!

As a nursing assistant, you spend every day caring for others.  But, do you remember to take good care of yourself, too?  To work toward wellness for yourself, it’s important to focus on five different components of life, including:

Emotional Wellness

People who are emotionally well are able to express their feelings freely. They know how to handle the stress of their daily lives and know when and how to seek support from others. They also work to develop healthy relationships with others.

TIP:  Try the old "count to ten" trick when you feel angry.

Intellectual Wellness

Ongoing education is important for intellectual wellness. People who are intellectually well enjoy learning new things, expressing their creativity, and improving their skills. (For example, by visiting this website and reading this blog, you are working on your intellectual wellness!)

TIP:  Try to keep up with current events.  Discuss them with friends or family members.
