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.
While Alvis does not currentlyemploy nursing assistants, we are grateful for our plethora of direct support staff who assist clients with their daily and long-term needs. These positions include our direct support professionals, cognitive behavioral specialists, nurses and physicians at our behavioral healthcare sites, and counselors. Some of these positions also give the on-site care similar to nursing assistants, as they display daily the invaluable readiness and attentiveness that our clients need to succeed during their life-changing journeys.
Alvis offers behavioral healthcare services that specifically serve clients with behavioral healthcare needs, such as Amethyst and Recovery Choices. Additionally, community reentry programs offer on-site staff that target behavioral health concerns, along with the professional physicians, counselors, and DSPs supporting clients with developmental disabilities.
There are current openings for some of the previously mentioned direct service positions, and Alvis is actively searching for passionate caregiving professionals seeking out life-changing work.
The end goal throughout all of our programs is to make a #180DegreeImpact, inspiring clients to live courageously, so they find the tools necessary to change their story. This would not be possible without our gifted clinical staff.
