CHICAGO (December 4, 2018)—myCNAjobs, a recruitment service built for senior care and a free resource for caregivers, announces a new job placement initiative to help American Red Cross-trained nurse assistants obtain jobs in health care and combat the caregiver shortages and retention challenges plaguing the health care industry. myCNAjobs will provide job placement services for graduates of Red Cross CNA training programs across the nation and track valuable hire and retention data.
Long recognized as the trailblazer in CNA training, the Red Cross has provided nurse assistant training for almost 30 years and has been a leader in the nursing profession for more than 100 years. The Red Cross Nurse Assistant Training program provides participants with the knowledge and hands-on training needed to prepare them for a career in the health care system.
“Through the program, our goals are to help ensure every Red Cross-trained CNA finds work quickly and stays in the industry,” says Brandi Kurtyka, CEO of myCNAjobs. “Our intention is to create more awareness of certified nursing as a profession and retain highly trained CNAs.”
“Nursing has been part of the American Red Cross legacy for more than a century,” said Jean Erdtmann, vice president of Customer Operations and Nurse Assistant Program Management for the Red Cross. “We are committed to working with organizations, like myCNAjobs, to help address the critical nurse assistant shortage.”
“The single biggest threat to the senior care industry is a shortage of talent, adds Kurtyka. “Through this initiative, we hope to make a dent in solving it.”
