The NCHCFA Annual Awards program provides the opportunity to acknowledge front line unlicensed personnel who have demonstrated outstanding achievements in the long term care profession. The program honors individuals who are the backbone in our facilities because of the care they provide to residents. Each year an outstanding Nurse Aide is recognized from each of NCHCFA’s five districts. In addition, one recipient in a non-nursing discipline is recognized for the “Riley W. Clapp Outstanding Service” award. Each of the award recipients is honored at the Annual Awards Gala during the Annual Convention & Expo. At the conclusion of the event, one of the five Nurse Aide winners is recognized as the J.R. Garrett Direct Care Worker of the Year Award for the exceptional service they provide to North Carolina’s long term care residents. Individuals are nominated by their colleagues for these special awards.
