Nurse Assistant Day at Owens Honors Nurse Assistants of Northwest Ohio

  The dedication and service of nearly 300 nurse assistants in Northwest Ohio recently was honored at the Nurse Assistant Recognition Day at Owens Community College.

  Nurse assistants from area hospitals, nursing homes, home health care agencies and hospices in 14 counties were invited to this special event. The day includes a variety of workshops for professional development in the College's Audio/Visual Classroom Center, followed by a luncheon and awards ceremony.

  "Nurse Assistant of the Year" awards were presented at the luncheon, based on recommendations from peers and administrators.

  This is the ninth year for the Nurse Assistant Recognition Day, hosted by Owens' Center for Development and Training (CDT), which is the largest training provider for nurse assistants in Northwest Ohio.
