STNAs Are Our Backbone

July 13, 2023
Unless you have worked in a nursing environment, you probably have no idea what an STNA actually does. Yes, they keep the residents clean and make sure they get to meals and activities, but did you know they also have hidden superpowers? It's true! State Tested Nursing Assistants are the eyes and ears of our residents. They know more about the residents than anyone else in the building; sometimes, they even know more than the family members. Their job is not only to be a caretaker but a listener, a confidant, and a secret-keeper. STNAs are one of the first staff members that new residents meet and are often the ones holding their hands when they pass. They spend so much time with the residents that they build great relationships and become like family.

Many nurses and STNAs feel deep gratitude for the privilege to care for and witness humanity at its most vulnerable. With this unique experience comes many rewards and blessings, all great in their own manner. We have observed such tenderness in our co-workers for their patients. They go into uncertain situations every day and continue to do their jobs. The choice of becoming a healthcare worker is different for everyone. For some, it is a calling, a passion for making a difference and healing a community. For others, it is a guarantee of financial security and the ability to support their family. Most of the time, it’s a bit of both. But at the end of the day, our staff is caring, kind, and compassionate towards anyone that walks through our doors.

To all Timberland Ridge's STNAs, we appreciate everything you do and could not do it without you!
