STATE FLAG OF NEBRASKA.jpg
CNA CLASSES IN NEBRASKA

CNAs who are employed in Medicare/Medicaid certified facilities and licensed nursing homes need to have successfully completed a course and undergo a competency evaluation. General Nurse Aides outside of these facilities do not require placement on the registry but may request inclusion if they meet the standards.

A CNAs status on the registry must be verified by employers before hiring. In Nebraska nurse aides can work for up to 120 days while in search of a state-licensed program. This grace period in non-renewable and all required classes and evaluation must be completed during the 120 days.

The Department of Health may consent for military-trained nurse assistants and foreign nurses to skip classes and evaluation. Foreign nurse aides must send a cover letter request along with all relevant documents and proof of classwork regarding abuse/neglect, as well as a clean record. The request will be reviewed, and the department will ascertain if the applicant must be evaluated prior to their placement on the registry.

Other state requirements include:

  • Being 18 years of age or older

  • Having a high school diploma or GED equivalent (depends on the program)

  • Proof of ability to communicate, write, and read in English

  • A clean criminal background – no arrest, assault, etc.

  • A physical exam indicating good health

  • A negative TB test/chest x-ray

  • Immunization records (MMR, Varicella, Hepatitis B, Meningitis)
