Nurse Aide Training Programs in Indiana

Did you know that long-term-care facilities and nursing homes that employ a certified nurse aide in Indiana are no longer responsible for submitting certification renewal information? It is the responsibility of every certified nursing assistant to renew her certification. The Indiana Nurse Aide Registry sends renewal forms to each certified nursing assistant sixty days prior to a certification expiration date. The mailed forms will include all the information necessary to renew your nursing assistant certificate online.

There is no charge associated with this process. Once you receive the renewal forms in the mail you need to visit the CNA registry's renewal web page, fill in the personal information and password provided to you, and submit your request. It only takes approximately one to two days for the renewal of your nurse aide certification to be displayed on the registry page. It is also possible to renew a nurse aide certification by mailing in the completed forms but choosing this way will result in a longer wait period for renewal to take place. The same process applies a home health aide or medication aide certified in Indiana. The only difference is for an individual certified as a medication aide who has to pay a ten dollars renewal fee every two years.

Nursing assistant programs prepare individuals for challenging the nurse aide certification exam and for entry level positions in health care environments. Each state has the authority to decide how many hours of training a nursing assistant course must consist of, as long as the minimum federal requirement of seventy-five hours is met. Students interested in attending CNA classes have a wide array of choices when it comes to selecting a training facility.

Nursing assistant courses are conducted at nursing homes, vocational schools, private schools, and community colleges. Program length, admission requirements, and cost of training vary depending on the policies of every training facility. Several states have implemented legislation which requires licensed long-term care facilities to reimburse CNA employees for the costs associated with training. An individual who has paid for nursing assistant training classes and who becomes employed by a nursing home within a year of obtaining certification, is eligible for financial reimbursement. Compared to other training programs in the health care field, nursing assistant classes are relatively short and inexpensive. Obtaining state certification as a CNA is the main requirement for securing a nurse aide job at a nursing home, hospital, rehabilitation or skilled nursing facility.

I just moved to Washington State and I am trying to get my nurse aide license switched from Indiana to Washington but I am have trouble finding out how to go about it. Any suggestions?

Admin on September 08, 2009 at 07:32 PM
Since you hold an active nursing assistant certification in Indiana, you are eligible to apply for certification by endorsement in Washington State. The Washington Department of Health reviews your application and grants you certification if you meet the state's educational and training requirements. The nurse aide certification by endorsement application may be found here: Certified Nursing Assistant Endorsement Application Packet. Print and read the instructions carefully before you complete the form. If you have further questions regarding the endorsement process you may call the Washington Department of Health nursing assistant certification line at: (360) 236-4700. Good luck!

CNA Training Requirements

There is a wide disparity between CNA training requirements among the states. The difference lies in the mandatory number of total training hours necessary to complete state-approved CNA classes.

While according to federal law each nursing assistant course should contain a minimum of seventy-five (75) instruction and clinical hours, individual states have the liberty to mandate extra training requirements for certified nursing assistants. The majority of states exceed the threshold federal minimum requirements for nurse aide training programs because they are considered insufficient to result in an optimal and safe level of care for clients.

A review of nationwide state requirements for nurse assistant courses has found that the following states have mandated highest number of CNA program hours: Maine with a minimum of 90 hours of theory, 20 hours of laboratory skills and 70 hours of clinical instruction for a total of 180 hours; California with one hundred and sixty (160) training hours; Delaware and Oregon each requiring one hundred and fifty (150) hours; followed by the state of Alaska with one hundred and forty (140) hours; Virginia, Arizona, and West Virginia have a minimum of one hundred and twenty (120) training hours for state-approved classes.
