National Nursing Assistants Week – June 16th-22nd
Nursing Assistants Week is a week to celebrate all the nursing assistants worldwide for the work they do, providing life-saving, compassionate care.
It’s a week we have to thank the CNAs, STNAs, GNAs, LNAs, SRNAs, and more who care for us and the people we love most.
This group rarely gets the attention or recognition they deserve. See what IntelyCare is doing in 2022 to support our Nursing Assistants.
Celebrating our CNAs during Nursing Assistants Week 2022
This year, we see Nursing Assistants Week as an opportunity to recognize and celebrate our nursing communities. Thank you for everything you do! IntelyCare would not exist without you!
Kulah Mulbah, CNA
Meet, Kulah Mulbah! She is a CNA from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, but spent part of her childhood in Liberia and Ghana. She started her nursing career as a medical assistant at a doctor’s office. She then worked as a CNA in hospice care at Abington Hospital in Abington, Pennsylvania. During her nursing work, she began to experiment with IntelyCare.
“The traditional CNA job has little growth at all. You’re stuck from paycheck to paycheck. With IntelyCare, I can meet new people, solve new problems, and grow my professional and personal experiences by visiting different facilities. And it helps that I have the chance to earn better pay every time I take a shift.”
Kulah is a dedicated and hard-working CNA, who finds her hospice care work extremely rewarding.
Marilily Guitierrez, CNA
Meet one of our Certified Nursing Assistants, Marilily Guitierrez! When she was just 17 years old, a family from church asked her to take care of their grandma with dementia. When she took care of her, she learned a lot about how dementia affects the mind and the impact that someone with dementia has on the people around them.
“Even though she couldn’t remember things, for some reason she was okay with me taking care of her. We grew a real bond, and I loved it. In elder care, I know I can make a difference in their lives by taking care of them and connecting with them. From there, my grandmother gave me money to get a CNA license in Manhattan.”
Marilily’s superpower is her ability to care deeply for her patients and people around her.

How Did Nursing Assistants Week Start?
Since 1977, we’ve had a week to celebrate and give thanks to the Nursing Assistants and their work to provide quality care to our loved ones.
During World War I, the 8,000 US Army Nurses deployed had nursing assistants – people who were compelled to support US soldiers, even if they weren’t registered nurses – to help provide life-saving care to those fighting for their country.
These nurses and nursing assistants in the Red Cross program were celebrated for their courage and compassion working on the front line and in civilian hospitals. Since then, the CNA job came home to the US with a new goal on US soil: long-term care.
