We also have a QUESTION OF THE WEEK feature here- where we take questions from emails, the message board and elsewhere and provide a well thought out answer! As well, there is an OBRA SURVEY category where we try to link up the work of the CNA with the annual inspections each nursing home must endure.

Our mission here is to provide CNAs, charge nurses, DONs, Staff Development and others, modern, freshly updated and honest materials to use to further enhance the work of the CNA. We do not accept advertisements on this site, nor do we endorse products. We will review books when asked and provide a written narrative on the book. The materials here are written by CNAs for CNAs. These are not professional articles, just from-the-heart knowledge we want to share. All materials here are free to use, but not for reproduction on other websites. Again, thanks for stopping by. Please feel free to contact us any time.
