National Career Nurse Assistants’ Day: Celebrating Direct Support Staff
You probably didn’t know it, but June 13th is National Career Nurse Assistants’ Day! This is a day designed to commend nursing assistants and applaud all of the wonderful things they do. This day also marks the kickoff to an entire week, known as National Nursing Assistant’s Week.
Sponsored by the National Network of Career Nursing Assistants, Career Nurse Assistants’ Day, in a more general sense, celebrates direct support staff and the work that they do.
Alvis does not currently employ nursing assistants, but that isn’t going to stop us from celebrating the plethora of medically-related staff we have at Alvis who are dedicated to working with our clients to meet both their daily and long-term needs. These positions include:
- Direct Support Professionals, who work with clients with developmental disabilities in a capacity similar to nursing assistants by helping these clients to lead lives that are more independent and fully participate in their communities;
- Cognitive Behavioral Specialists, who work with clients to help them recognize patterns of thinking that can lead to harmful behaviors;
- Counselors and Therapists, who are making a difference in the lives of clients in multiple Alvis programs, including our Amethyst and Recovery Choices programs, which serve clients with substance use disorders and/or mental health disorders.
There are current openings for some of these positions at Alvis. If you are a caring and compassionate person who wants to help people transform their lives, Alvis is the place for you! Join our team in doing this life-changing work.
Across all Alvis programs, our goal is to make a #180DegreeImpact and provide our clients with the tools and support to live courageously and change their stories. This would not be possible without our gifted staff.
