Slide Lori Porter - NAHCA Co-Founder, CEO Although I support this report, I have done so with reservations about the Workforce Ecosystem. Specifically, NAHCA supports government funded staffing requirements for CNAs in nursing homes. We recommend a ratio of one to 6 residents per CNA. We also support direct wage pass through for CNAs to move from a national average pay of $13.00 an hour to $16.00 with a pathway to $22.00 an hour. Nursing homes alone cannot fix this challenge.
