To address our historic, frontline worker shortage, it is critically necessary that facilities adopt the Resident Care Assistant (RCA) to Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) pipeline as a key strategy to grow your own workforce. The RCA position was designed specifically to support existing nursing staff, assist with resident care, and create an accessible path for career advancement to CNA.
