Career Nurse Assistant Week Celebrated with T-shirts Awarded Daily from Caregiverlist

Chicago, Illinois, Phoenix, Arizona, San Francisco, California (PRWEB) June 20, 2013

Certified Nursing Aides, or C.N.A.’s, perform the hands-on care for seniors needing care in their home, and in nursing homes, hospitals and assisted living communities. But not so long ago there was no formal job description or certification training for nursing assistants.

Career Nurse Assistant Week, from June 13 - 20th, 2013, recognizes certified nursing assistants. Caregiverlist announces daily promotions during Career Nurse Assistant Week and recognizes the founding team behind the creation of the C.N.A. job description.

“Not so long ago there was no formal certification training for the most important workers in caregiving - the nursing assistants helping seniors with their daily activities of living,” says Julie Northcutt, CEO of Caregiverlist, Inc. “We look forward to continuing to advance initiatives which recognize Certified Nursing Aides and professional caregivers.”

Caregiverlist’s series of interviews on the Certified Nursing Assistant industry begin with Genevieve Gipson, R.N., and member of the founding team of the C.N.A. Network which created the guidelines for C.N.A. job descriptions and training.

Ms. Gipson’s efforts lead to formal recognition of nursing assistants and national legislation creating training and competency testing standards nationwide.

“I never intended to start an organization,” says Ms. Gipson. “We set-up a training program before legislation was created and before there was a definition for the job.” These efforts began the movement for an industry segment to be created for nursing assistants.

As the senior care industry continues to strive to deliver higher quality care, more innovations will be needed to communicate care needs with all care providers including doctors and hospitals and rehabilitation centers. C.N.A.'s can be the most important care provider as they have the most direct contact with the seniors they are caring for each day.

Caregiverlist recognizes Genevieve Gipson as an innovator in senior care and recognizes the vital job duties of nursing assistants with t-shirts awarded daily to C.N.A.'s during Career Nursing Assistant’s Week.

Refer-a-Friend to a Caregiving Job on Caregiverlist and be entered for a chance to win a t-shirt along with additional awards. Caregivers may also share their caregiving story on Caregiverlist.

Senior care companies looking for ideas to recognize Certified Nursing Assistants this week can review the Nursing Assistant's Network's 10 Ways to Recognize a Nursing Assistant., launched in 2008, innovated in creating a new hiring platform for Certified Nursing Aides to submit 1 job application and be connected with multiple job openings in their area. Companion caregivers and nursing assistants may find training and apply to a job in their area. Anyone interested in beginning a career in senior care may take a practice C.N.A. test on Caregiverlist to learn about the skills taught and find a Certified Nursing Aide school in their area, along with admission requirements by visiting the Caregiverlist Career Center.
