CNAs...
We Are Here For You!

NAHCA is a Professional Association
of and for Certified Nursing Assistants.

The CNA Association

There are many benefits to being a member of the National Association of Health Care Assistants (NAHCA). As the CNA Association, we stand together to demonstrate our professional pride and advocate for policies and practices that advance certified nursing assistants in their careers as well as their personal lives. NAHCA members represent nursing homes, assisted living, home care, hospice, and even hospital care. We have a large number of CNA members nationwide.


Short Film Application

NAHCA is making a short film about the heroism of CNAs during the pandemic, and we want you and your experiences, good and bad, happy and sad, to be part of it. As we continue our advocacy efforts in Congress and the administration with legislators and policymakers, we want to hear from CNAs who are interested in being on camera to tell their stories of fear, sadness, courage, and heroism.

Make Your Voice Heard!

Contact your representative and make your voice heard. We make it easy with a range of tools that summarize the issues, provide sample letters and help you contact your members of Congress. Your work as an advocate is crucial to motivating legislators and other policymakers.

NAHCA Issues Statement on COVID-19 Vaccinations for Certified Nursing Assistants

Following much deliberation and consideration about COVID-19 and the rise of its variants, the National Association of Health Care Assistants (NAHCA) remains divided on the issue of supporting across-the-board vaccine mandates for all aging services employees. While NAHCA urges all frontline staff caring for elders to get vaccinated, the organization also recognizes the significant division on the question of vaccinations among its membership.
