Why Your Peers Love Nursing Assistant Monthly:

"This is, far and away, the only publication I know of that speaks directly to CNAs about their concerns. It really helps to build a sense of pride and self-esteem."

"It's a complete in-service every month, ready to deliver. It's very easy to use and full of helpful ideas. The CNAs absolutely love it. It creates a lot of discussion among them and gives them the validation they need. I love it too because it really cuts my workload!"

"I've found every issue to be valuable to our Nursing Assistants. We've had only positive responses to the program, and I estimate at least 90 percent of our CNAs read it each month. Our professional staff also enjoy it! Keep up the great work!"
