I am not combining CNA day with Nurses day in my facility. Instead I am going to meet with each group seperately and promote the idea that we have a day where the CNA's honor the Nurses and in Sept the Nurses honor the CNAs. I am thinking the aides could host a meal for the nurses and then do ice cream socials on shift for those who couldnt make the meal. Also I am thinking of having the nursing dept do a Silent Auction and a couple of fund raisers so that we have some funds to buy scratch off tickets and different little trinket style gifts etc. Maybe a large gift like a grill for the "Nurse of the Year" and the "CNA of the Year". What are your thoughts? What are some of the best things that were ever done for you or that you have done for this day that went over well?
