Why certified nursing assistants are so valuable

It is crucial to recognize the invaluable contributions made by certified nursing assistants (CNAs) in year-round skilled nursing centers. These compassionate and dedicated individuals form the backbone of resident care, providing essential support to nurses and ensuring the well-being of those in their care.

Unfortunately, the looming health care worker shortage threatens to strain health care centers in the future. We can prevent the long-term impacts of this shortage if we encourage more Floridians to consider a career in health care and recognize CNAs for their unwavering commitment to the health and well-being of our state’s seniors and people with disabilities who reside in our nursing centers.

CNAs are the unsung heroes in our profession, working tirelessly on the front lines to provide comfort, assistance and care to residents across the country. They play a vital role in bridging the gap between residents and nurses, often acting as the eyes and ears of the nursing team. With their deep understanding of residents’ needs and exceptional interpersonal skills, CNAs build trusting relationships with residents and often become their second family. Through their consistent presence and attentive care, they offer a compassionate ear, a reassuring smile, and a helping hand during moments of distress.
