The coronavirus pandemic shed new—and much-needed—light on the valuable work that certified nursing assistants (CNA) carry out each day as they provide services and supports to older adults. The pandemic also shed new light on the CNA staffing shortages that have plagued the field of aging services for many years. This session will examine the CNA workforce crisis from a variety of perspectives. You’ll hear from CNAs who are committed to caring for older adults but are leaving their jobs for a variety of compelling reasons. A CEO will describe the resources and support his organizations offers to help CNAs remain on the job. The leader of a CNA membership organization will explain how providers and caregivers are finding common ground as they work together to tackle workforce challenges. Don’t miss this opportunity to gain new perspectives on staffing shortages—and solutions.
