Certification vs. Accreditation vs. Licensure:

What’s the Difference in Health Care?

 

 

  • Certifications are credentials that individuals   
  • seek to prove their proficiency in certain specialties or   procedures.

 

  • Accreditations are recognitions from non-governmental
  • third-party agencies that someone has met pre-determined standards.

 

  • Licensure is a formal recognition by a regulation
  • agency that someone is proficient in a skill to practice
  • it in an area, often a state.

The research from the Kaiser Permanente study on ACEs is clear and compelling. ACEs (Adverse Childhood Experiences) have far reaching impact within our communities and our schools and is noted to be a public health crisis.  Attend this session to review the brain science behind ACEs and explore concepts and frameworks to apply universally that will assist in building more resilient students. At the conclusion of this session, participants will have a strengthened understanding of the ACEs research in order to positively impact student academic and social outcomes. Also, participants will learn strategies for practicing self-care to manage their compassion fatigue as a result of caring for others. Finally, participants will learn strategies that will assist them in building the positive relationships necessary to help students succeed to the best of their abilities.

U.S. Nursing Assistants
 
 
Employed
 
 
in Nursing Homes
 
 
Over 600,000 nursing assistants deliver personal care, assistance with ADLs and clinical support to 1.5 million nursing home residents across the United States.
 
 
91% are female.
 
 
9% are male.
 
 
Most nursing assistants are under age 45.  The median age is 36.
 
 
2.2 median hours per resident per day spent with CNAs.
 
 
Median CNA income of $21,200 per year. ($12.84/hour) 
 
 
Half of nusring assistants have completed no formal education beyond high school. 
 
CNAs are over 3 times more likely to experience workplace injuries than the typical U.S. worker.
 
 
76% work full time for a full year.
 
  • In the years ahead, nursing assistants will contribute more to nursing home employment growth than any other occupation. HOWEVER, due in part to the rebalancing of services toward home and community-based settings, nursing home growth will be modest, with an estimated 4,200 new nursing assistant postions added between 2016 - 2026.
