Nursing assistant certification training resources

The IHCA ICAL Workforce Committee, with the assistance of Lisa Elwick, LNHA, reviewed possible options (click here for list). The Department of Inspections and Appeals also maintains a database of approved nursing assistant certified programs (click here to view).
