Chicago Certified Nursing Assistant and Caregiver Appreciation Day June 16, 2017

C.N.A. Day of Celebration 2017

Caregivers and Certified Nursing Assistants provide the hands-on care to assist seniors to age-in-place and to live a healthy lifestyle.

Chicago Caregivers and C.N.A.'s and any individual interested in becoming a C.N.A. or Caregiver are invited to join us in celebrating the 40th Annual National Nursing Assistants Week. Genevieve Gipson, a Registered Nurse in Ohio, created the C.N.A. Network and advocated for professional certification for nursing assistants. Her efforts enabled national legislation for the training and certification of nursing assistants nationwide.

Free C.N.A. Day of Celebration

Friday, June 16, 2017

9 a.m. to 4 p.m. (Morning Workshops from 9 a.m. to 12 noon will be repeated in afternoon from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.)

Midwestern Career College, located on Chicago River near Metra train and El trains

100 South Wacker Drive, Lower Level

RSVP to Attend 

More Caregivers and C.N.A.'s are needed as America's seniors continue to live longer lives while needing senior care to assist them with their Activities of Daily Living (ADL's).

Become a professional senior caregiver in Illinois by taking an online 8-hour course meeting the state's training requirements. Certified Nursing Aides are required to attend an approved C.N.A. school such as the Midwestern Career College and to then pass the state exam for official "certification" as a nursing aide. This is the first step in the career ladder for working in the healthcare field which is predicted to be a top employer in the coming decade.

You may begin your caregiving career by applying for a job on Caregiverlist and you will then be considered for employment as a companion caregiver or C.N.A. by licensed senior home care agencies.

Join us on June 16th for Workshops on how to pay for C.N.A. school (you can qualify for funding of your tuition), attend mini-training courses by C.N.A. instructors and meet employers. View the agenda for the C.N.A. Appreciation Day - and you also receive a goody bag and free food and snacks!
