Recruitment and retention of direct care workers is one of the largest challenges facing long term care providers across the nation. An increased demand for services due to an aging population and a declining supply of individuals seeking and maintaining careers in this profession are factors responsible for a looming workforce crisis. It will take a significant effort to attract, recruit and retain skilled workers.
IHCA/INCAL is dedicated to supporting our members in their efforts to recruit, train and retain quality staff. Learn more about our workforce development offerings and how they might be of use to you.
As of Monday, April 18, 2022, all QMA and QMA Insulin exams are exclusively administered electronically at Ivy Tech Community College Testing Centers.
Applications and payments will be processed by the office and, upon validation, candidates will immediately receive an email with instructions on how to schedule an appointment at the Ivy Tech campus of their choice for QMA and QMA Insulin exams.
Facilities that already have testing dates on the schedule as of April 14 that include QMA or QMA Insulin exams will administer the exams at the facility unless requested by the facility to move those candidates to this model ahead of the facility testing date.
Retakes: QMA and QMA Insulin individual retest requests will be processed and routed directly to the testing centers for scheduling. QMA and QMA Insulin retest requests submitted as part of a CNA group testing scheduled at a facility will be processed and scheduled as part of the group.
CNA and QMA testing has moved within Ivy Tech Community College from Health Sciences to Statewide Testing Services. You may contact Brian Hamilton, Director of Statewide Testing Services, at email@example.com.
