Rewarding Nursing Assistants - Letting Them Know They Are Important!
In a world where the average lifespan continues to increase, it’s even more important that we take the opportunity to celebrate the people who have invested their working lives in helping with our health care.
In the days ahead, we’re particularly mindful of a group that may not always stand out—but they should. They’re nursing assistants and there’s an entire seven days—National Nursing Assistants’ Week (June 12-19)—set aside to do just that.
One excellent way to acknowledge the nursing assistants in your life is with a gift card from National Gift Card. With brands like CVS Pharmacy or Target, both “health-minded” retailers are sure to resonate with the nursing assistants who work tirelessly--and sometimes behind the scenes--to keep you healthy.
The fact is that nursing assistants are more important than they’ve ever been, especially as our society successfully ages.
This year is the 39th annual celebration of National Nursing Assistants’ Week, with the National Network of Career Nursing Assistants (www.cna-network.org) suggesting the theme: “Nursing Assistants—I Choose Respect.”
Thousands of people, including, of course, nursing assistants themselves, will be involved in recognition events and educational activities.
Your “thank you” with a gift card from National Gift Card, branded with either CVS Pharmacy or Target, could be “just the thing” to have your organization stand out in the mind of your favorite nursing assistant.
Have fun this year, and “thank you” to all the nursing assistants for the good work you do, 52 weeks a year.
