Temporary Nurse Aide Training

To assist in addressing staffing shortages due to the COVID-19 pandemic, CMS is waiving the requirements that a facility may not employ anyone for longer than four months unless they meet certain training and certification requirements. This waiver allows nursing centers to temporarily employ individuals who have completed alternative training paths, as long as they are competent to provide relevant nursing and nursing related services.

To fill this need, AHCA/NCAL is offering an 8-hour online Temporary Nurse Aide training course free to all providers as soon as all required state approvals, such as state occupational licensing and state regulatory requirements, are received.



MHCA is contracted by the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services to certify Nurse Assistants, Medication Technicians, Level One Medication Aides, and Insulin Administration.  We also certify Restorative Aides and Dining Assistants. You can download procedures and registration forms (see below) for each of these disciplines. 

The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services maintains the Missouri Certified Nurse Assistant RegistryInformation received in this registry search fulfills the Long Term Care Facility documentation requirement.  A specific copy of the certificate is not required.  Click here to view the State Regulations.
