Finding and keeping talented, dedicated nurse aides is challenging, and it’s only going to get worse. A staffing shortage affects the morale of front-line caregivers. It increases stress, burnout, and ultimately resident well-being.

If you’re a skilled nursing facility struggling with CNA staff shortages and nurse aide turnover, one potential solution is trying build your own in-house certification program to create a pipeline of new hires. However, many organizations don’t choose this path because the process to get state approval, deliver an effective course, and find qualified teachers can seem daunting.

Join us as our experts walk you through the state approval process and discuss how to build an in-house nurse aide training program.

During this webinar you will learn:

  • What your organization needs to do to set up a nurse aide training program
  • Common mistakes SNFs make during the approval process
  • How the Relias Straightaway solution can help you build your program
