Free CNA/QMA Training Through Indiana Nurse Aide Connections

Posted Mar 25, 20241 min Read

Regulatory & Clinical

Candidates must be enrolled by May 5, 2024

Indiana Nurse Aide Connections is a program designed to provide free training and testing to encourage people of all ages to start working as Certified Nursing Aides (CNAs) and Qualified Medication Aides (QMAs) with the people who need them and appreciate them the most—the residents in Indiana’s long-term care facilities.

There is a critical shortage of health care workers in Indiana. By covering the cost of training and the certification exam, the Indiana Nurse Aide Connections program aims to shrink that shortage. This program is administered through a partnership between IDOH, Rise Up Healthcare Academy and coming soon, Ivy Tech – Fort Wayne. Funding has been provided through a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Strike Team.

The Indiana Nurse Aide Connections program is being offered for a limited time. The candidates must enroll by May 5 and complete the training and testing by July 31. Interested parties should begin the application process as soon as possible by registering here.
