$6M Invested to Increase the Number of Certified Nursing Assistants for Wisconsin Nursing Homes

The investment into WisCaregiver Careers is expected to add 3,000 CNAs to the state’s workforce.

A new $6 million investment to expand the WisCaregiver Careers workforce development program in Wisconsin is expected to fill as many as 3,000 new certified nursing assistant (CNA) training slots.

WisCaregiver Careers, a public-private partnership, is designed to address the shortage of CNAs in Wisconsin nursing homes by providing free training, free certification testing, and $500 sign-on or retention bonuses. The idea is to encourage new workers to enter the field of caregiving by lowering the costs of becoming a CNA and by making training more readily accessible....

Ken Notes: So to follow up, CNA`s should have a path to become RN`s while working in the industry.
