Celebrate & Support Nursing Assistants

National Nursing Assistants Week was celebrated June 13-19, 2024. Join CDC’s Project Firstline to recognize Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs) across the nation who show an unwavering commitment to providing quality care to their patients and residents.

CNAs are skilled, vital members of the healthcare team, and we express our gratitude for their commitment to serving on the frontlines each day. CNAs dedicate themselves to infection prevention and control and help maintain safe and healthy environments for all patients and residents.

Show your Support

Support CNAs in your facility by saying “thank you” and acknowledging their contributions, which enhance infection control knowledge and make a significant impact in people’s lives.

Build their Knowledge

Utilize these important resources with CNAs in your facility to continue to build knowledge and strengthen infection control practices:

  • Interactive infection control activities: CNA’s can test their knowledge in real time and learn how to apply infection control solutions to stop the spread of germs.
  • Infection Control training toolkits: View ready-made materials and resources to host facilitated training sessions on a variety of infection control topics.
  • Micro-learn series: Use a series of guided discussions to help your staff recognize common infection risks and stop the spread of germs.
  • Enhanced Barrier Precautions resources: If you work in a nursing home, share these resources to help support your staff in understanding and effectively using Enhanced Barrier Precautions to protect residents and themselves.
