Policy and Procedure for Requesting Waiver of Disapproval of Nurse Aide Training

Posted May 27, 20222 min Read

Regulatory & Clinical

Facilities whose CNA training has been banned had the opportunity during the COVID-19 public health emergency to request a waiver and conduct abbreviated nurse aide training in their facility by an approved CNA training program, according to the Order Authorizing Abbreviated Training of Certified Nurse Aides in Facilities Subject to CNA Training Bans. These waivers expire on July 1, 2022. Any CNA training completed after July 1 must include the full CNA curriculum and consist of 105 hours of training.

Please review the new IDOH policy and procedure for facilities to request a waiver of disapproval of nurse aide training, in effect as of June 1. Facilities may request a waiver by emailing with the required information in the checklist of information to request a waiver of disapproval of Nurse Aide Training and Competency Evaluation Program (NATCEP).
