About the Nursing Assistant Certificate course

The 5-credit nursing assistant training course provides the education required for basic entry into the healthcare field as a nursing assistant or home health aide, including 24 hours of supervised clinical experience in a long-term care facility. After completing this course, which includes lecture and lab hours as well as clinicals at the MVA–Minneapolis facility, you will be prepared to take the Minnesota Department of Health Nursing Assistant Registry exam for certification.

Students may get reimbursed for tuition costs

Under current federal law, nursing assistants working in a federally funded, long-term care facility and attending this class should not be charged for costs related to training (course, textbooks, and training materials), or the competency examination.

Students enrolled in this course and currently employed as a nursing assistant by a federally funded, long-term care facility are asked to discuss with the employer the costs of the course and the requirements of the law which state that the facility cover costs for the student. Facilities paying costs for the student are in compliance with federal laws regarding this issue.

Students are encouraged to discuss any questions regarding reimbursement with the Nursing Assistant Certificate course instructor.
