JOPLIN, Mo. — Creston Nursing and Rehab announced Certified Nursing Assistant Sandy Shimono has recently completed online training from the National Association of Health Care Assistants (NAHCA) and has earned the credentials as a NAHCA certified preceptor.

The multi-media programs, written and delivered by NAHCA, provide instruction and coaching to ensure caregiver students understand how important they are to health care and education is the key to a successful career in the field of caregiving for the frail and elderly. Furthermore, the NAHCA Virtual Campus of Care (NVCC) assists learners to understand how to effectively mentor and train new nursing assistants entering the profession of caregiving to the frail and elderly.

By completing the online courses, each participant demonstrates the knowledge and tools needed to building the most consistent and stable team of professional caregivers at Creston Nursing and Rehab.

“We are always very pleased that CNAs invest the time to learn how they can positively influence new nursing assistants and help them succeed,” said NAHCA Senior VicePresident of Membership Services Jeff Carter. “It also demonstrates the desire of the long-term care provider, Creston Nursing and Rehab, to invest in their staff to provide the best care possible. Ultimately, the frail and elderly benefit greatly with a consistent and skilled team of CNAs to provide what is often life-sustaining care.”
