Certified Nurse Aides (CNAs) fill the most hands-on role in resident care and are integral to the care process. CNA positions also represent the highest number of vacancies and rate of turnover in skilled nursing and assisted living. Identify onsite CNA training programs in your area and explore a new online training program from IHCA/INCAL and partner Academic Platforms.
IHCA/INCAL is excited to launch a new Online CNA Program in partnership with Academic Platforms, AHCA’s preferred provider, that will allow non-facility based and facility-based training programs to incorporate online didactic nurse assistant training in conjunction with their existing clinical training.
The Indiana State Department of Health’s Administrative Standards for Nurse Aide Training Program can be accessed here.
Please note: Indiana RNs who meet the licensing and experience requirements can meet “Standard 1.A.3.-Documentation of completion in a course teaching adults” by completing the ISDH approved Nurse Aide Program Director & Instructor Training Seminar offered through Ivy Tech Community College or the IU School of Nursing.
The Indiana State Department of Health oversees approval of Certified Nurse Aide (CNA) training sites and maintains a current list of approved facility-based and non-facility based training sites by county, and city.
