National Nursing Week – It’s Continuing Care Assistants (CCA) Day!

Earlier this week, I talked about the role of the LPN in continuing education and the skills brought to their work as part of the nursing team. Today I want to talk about the role of our CCAs. The Continuing Care Assistants bring experience, knowledge and training to their daily work. With a certificate program that covers different aspects and environments of care, there is a focus on the technical aspects of the work. But the people who work within this classification also bring a considerable amount of compassion to the care they provide.

Celebrate Nursing Week – It’s Licensed Practical Nurses (LPN) Day!

As we celebrate Nursing week, I ask you to remember this: everyone has skills to bring to our health care system.

Let’s work together to build strong nursing teams – to do this we must stop the ongoing attacks against all members of our nursing teams, recognize and value the professional skills offered by each and create pride and respect for our diverse roles.
