Instead of a career, most CNAs are offered a locked-in, no-growth job which almost ensures that they will eventually move on to something else. A career ladder program, on the other hand, offers them a sense of pride and feeling of professionalism in their position. If your facility invests the time and energy, this program will help you reduce your facility's CNA turnover, save you money, and build a more loyal staff.
