Nursing Assistant Training

Nursing Assistant Training

NAT001: This course introduces the concepts of basic human needs and the function of the nursing assistant in long term care and/or home health care. Basic nursing skills will be demonstrated and practiced in the laboratory setting. Upon successful completion of classroom studies, the student will participate at minimum 16 hours of supervised clinical experience in a long term care setting. Upon successful completion, the student is eligible to take the state Nursing Assistant Registry Exam.

This course is a prerequisite for most nursing {Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) and Registered Nurse (RN)} programs. It meets the objectives of Federal and State Statutory requirements for nursing assistant training. Our program uses the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities (MNSCU) curriculum therefore transferable to a technical college/community college/or university.

Simple right?  Reimbursement explained.

Reimbursement for Tuition and Fees: Both federal and state law require Medicare-certified health care facilities to reimburse nursing assistants for the cost of their training and testing if they meet the following conditions:

  1. The nursing assistant has received a job offer from the facility within 12 months of completing the training and testing. The facility is not obligated to reimburse the nursing assistant if more than 12 months have passed since completion of training and testing.
  2. The nursing assistant has not already been reimbursed by another facility. Reimbursement must be made by the first facility where the nursing assistant is employed 90 days from the date of the job offer.
  3. The nursing assistant has not quit or been terminated within 90 days of the job offer.
  4. The nursing assistant has actually paid for the cost of training and testing him/herself. It is important to keep all receipts, as the facility is not required to reimburse the nursing assistant without proof that he or she paid for the training and materials.

Nursing assistants must be reimbursed for the following expenses:

  1. Tuition and mandatory fees and insurance
  2. Required textbooks and supplies
  3. Uniforms and shoes that are required for the clinical experience
  4. Mileage: To be reimbursed, the student must have kept mileage records and must request reimbursement.
  5. Cost of the State Competency Exam: The facility is required to reimburse the student for the cost of the test and up to two retakes. (If either portion of the test is not passed in three attempts, the nursing assistant must retake the nursing assistant course).
