Career Nursing Assistant’s Day kicks off National Nursing Assistants’ Week every June.

Each year, starting on the Thursday of the second full week of June, Career Nursing Assistants and all of their hard work are celebrated for a full seven days.

Certified Nursing Assistants work with nurses to help their patients with daily living needs and other healthcare tasks. It's a newer profession than nursing.

Officially since 1977, Certified Nursing Assistants have had a national day of appreciation followed by a full week of celebrations. 

The beginning of the CNA profession coincided with World War I. At that time, almost 8,000 nurses initially deployed to serve under the Red Cross Program.

Serving alongside U.S. Army nurses, they worked in triage in major areas to treat wounded soldiers as well as fill positions of acute care in reserve, field, base and civilian hospitals. These nurses proved themselves to be tireless advocates for the well-being of American soldiers, simultaneously proving themselves praiseworthy for their bravery and strength. 

Six decades after World War I, CNAs would again find the call for action to be unavoidable. After President Ronald Regan signed the Omnibus Reconciliation Act of 1987, or an act to improve nursing homes, the CNA job market boomed.
