STNAs Are Our Backbone

July 6, 2023
Unless you have worked in a nursing environment, you probably have no idea what an STNA actually does. Yes, they keep the residents clean and make sure they get to meals and activities, but did you know they also have hidden superpowers? It's true! State Tested Nursing Assistants are the eyes and ears of our residents. They know more about the residents than anyone else in the building; sometimes, they even know more than the family members. Their job is not only to be a caretaker but a listener, a confidant and a secret-keeper. STNAs are one of the first staff members that new residents meet and are often the ones holding their hands when they pass. They spend so much time with the residents that they build great relationships and become like family.
