  1. Are you currently a CNA? We have many students converting from the nursing department to the activity department. It is an easy transition for most as they are already familiar with the facility, residents and daily schedule. We hear many reasons for the change of position when talking with our students. Among the listed reasons: Job Burnout Want More Involvement with Residents Better Work Schedule Have a More Creative Calling This is in no way an exhaustive list. However, it sheds some light on the thought process. Perhaps you are a CNA and have been feeling the need to make some changes for similar reasons. According to our MEPAP instructor, Kathy Hughes: NCCAP has rewritten the Certification requirements over the last year to make the transition easier. A new Track 4 was introduced to allow the NCCAP applicant to apply additional work experience in place of college credits, and requiring only a high school diploma or equivalent to apply for Certification. Here are the requirements for specific to experience in the NCCAP Standards: Applicable Work Experience A. Activity Professionals Certification i. 50% of work experience must be directly working with activity programming and documentation ii. 50% can be indirectly working with activities, ie Restorative, CNA, Dietary Aide, Rehab., etc. iii. 30% of this experience can be volunteer work with individuals across the continuum of care. NOTE: NCCAP will require an official letter from the facility typed on letterhead stating the hours accumulated. ENROLL NOW!

Activity Directors Network was founded in 1996 on the idea that we could help create elderly care that dramatically improved the lives of those we all serve. Activity Directors are the key to creating environments that we ourselves would be excited to live in. We envision facilities that feel like homes, not institutions. Facilities that celebrate our resident’s individuality and allows them to live with dignity, purpose and joy. We believe providing the best education available, with the most talented teachers we can find, is the way to make an impact. Each and every single one of you are the revolution that is changing everything. Thanks for being a part of The Network. Copyright © 2019 Activity Directors Network, LLC All rights reserved.
