CNA Classes in Minnesota ( Page 2 )
Becoming a nurse aide starts with finding a CNA training class that suits your needs. We know you are looking for a good, affordable program and that saving money on education is always a plus. Keep in mind that your educational expenses associated with a CNA training program are reimbursable if you become employed by a nursing home. According to the Minnesota Department of Health, a nursing assistant who pays for the cost of a CNA training course prior to becoming employed as a nurse assistant qualifies for reimbursement.
As soon as you become certified as a nurse aide in Minnesota you need to turn in all the receipts associated with the CNA program cost and request reimbursement from your employer. Save all the receipts including those for books, supplies, uniforms, tuition, and exam fees. You must work for a minimum of ninety (90) days in a long-term care facility in order to be reimbursed by that facility. Certified nursing homes and boarding care homes are required by law to reimburse a nursing assistant who has been their employee for a minimum of three months. As a nursing assistant you have one year from completion of the test to turn in receipts requesting reimbursement.

After becoming a CNA how much more experience, training or school has to be done to become a registered nurse?
Admin on August 18, 2014 at 11:32 PM
CNA training classes are usually between six and eight weeks long. During training you learn to provide assistance with activities of daily living to clients which are elderly, sick, or disabled. A registered nurse program involves a lot more studying than a CNA course. Associate degree nursing programs require at least two years of study and clinical practice, while bachelor's degree RN programs require four years of study and hands-on practice.

Can you share any tips or advice regarding CNA job interviews?
I am trying to get some info on where to start in the health care profession. Is it better to start as a CNA or LVN?
