CNA Day of Celebration 2017

Each year, caregivers and certified nursing assistants (C.N.A.’s) throughout the Chicagoland area work hard to be a positive and caring force in the lives of their patients. Not often enough does the healthcare world stop to thank them for their service.

On Friday, June 16, 2017, Caregiverlist and Midwestern Career College roll out the red carpet for C.N.A.’s and caregivers during the C.N.A. Day of Celebration. Timed to coincide with C.N.A. Appreciation Week from June 15-22, this event will feature a career fair, stimulating workshops, entertainment, prizes and food meant to thank them for their service and the work they do to improve the lives of their patients.

C.N.A.’s and caregivers confront challenging issues each day. Our workshops will help them get the continuing education they need while also providing them with advice on resume writing, interviewing and career progression.
