LD 784-Update to CNA Education Program Requirements

On May 25, 2021, H.P. 589 - L.D. 784  An Act To Amend the Law Governing Approval Authority over and Oversight of Certified Nursing Assistant Educational Programs was voted ought to pass which simplifies requirements for approval of educational programs for certified nursing assistants that are carried out by health care facilities by removing the requirement that health care facilities seeking approval must demonstrate that an educational institution cannot also provide such a program within 30 days of the application. Programs carried out by health care facilities must still be approved by the Department of Health and Human Services consistent with the curriculum approved by State Board of Nursing and must still fulfill all standards established by the department and by the board.
