National Nursing Assistants Week June 15-22
During World War II, nursing aides were first trained to work in military hospitals. Over 1,000 nursing aide or nursing assistants, served overseas. After the war, these workers were called health aids and they often worked in clinics and for the Visiting Nurses Association. During the 1940s the Red Cross trained them in hospital procedures because they needed more workers. Many of the nursing assistants during World War II worked for the Red Cross.
