Hear what our Nursing Professionals across the U.S. have to say…

Every nurse has a story. Whether it’s what inspired you to be a nurse, or the life lessons you’ve learned throughout your nursing journey, it’s the stories that connect us. So we’re humbled to provide a platform for nursing professionals to share what they do and who they are with us and each other in our Spotlight Series articles.

Meet Blailin

Blailin Baker is a long-term care Certified Nursing Assistant from Pennsylvania.

His career started in Nashville, Tennessee, where he got his license and started working two days after he passed his exam. His passion for nursing comes from his love of sports and the time he spent as a high-level track and field thrower.

Meet Shakira

Shakira Hodge is an LPN of seven years from Ohio. 

Shakira’s grandmother was the reason she entered the healthcare profession, having been a home care nurse herself. When she cared for her grandmother in the final stages of her life, she knew she had found her calling in caregiving…

Meet Marilily

Marilily Guitierrez is a Certified Nursing Assistant, currently practicing in Florida.

When she was just 17 years old, a family from church asked her to take care of their grandma with dementia. 

“Even though she couldn’t remember things…she was okay with me taking care of her. We grew a real bond, and I loved it…”

Meet Jackey

Jackey Williams is a CNA from Providence, Rhode Island. She’s been a CNA for nearly 30 years and has a lifetime of nursing experiences and stories to share. 

“When I can give people the ability to live their lives and put a smile on their faces, it puts a smile on mine too. That will always be what gets me up in the morning…”

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.

Take Big Swings

Meet our Healthcare Heroes

Healthcare Heroes faced unexpected challenges in 2020 – and tackled them with grace and courage.

To honor these healthcare heroes, we invited nursing professionals and skilled nursing facilities across the country to share their favorite healthcare hero moments.

They were inspiring and heartfelt, and we’re proud to share them with the world.
