CNAs and Home Health are required by the federal government to complete a minimum of 12 hours of continuing education units a year. Certified nursing assistant will need to check with the state Department of Health (DOH) for their particular requirements for CEUs and in-service training requirements.

Often time particular places of employment may have other requirements for continuing education and training for their staff to complete.

California: The certified nursing assistant certification certificates expire every two years. During each two year period there are 48 hours CNA inservice educational requirements. During the first year, twelve of the 48 hours must be completed during that time.

Florida: Certified nursing assistants in the state must execute a minimum of at least 18 hours of in-service training each year. Every two years the CEU for CNA  must contain the following

  • HIV/AIDS universal precautions
  • Documentation of healthcare records
  • Domestic violence
  • The right of the patient/resident
  • Prevention and safety in medical errors
  • CPR skills

Georgia: Only CNAs working in a licensed Medicaid/Medicare facility must  presently attend CEUs.  Twelve hours minimum  is required each year, and must be given by the facility.

Illinois:  At any point in time the Nursing Assistant may be required to demonstrate sufficient knowledge in every area of necessary education. This may be demonstrated by taking a written or action based exam. If it is determined that any of the skills are deemed insufficient, CEUs and review will be required until the nurse aide can demonstrate satisfactory information in each area of required education.

Indiana: Indiana’s facilities are required to conduct annual nursing assistant reviews to determine any insufficient areas. If any weak areas are revealed, the facility must provide in-service training to address these educational needs. Twelve hours of CEU for CNAs must be completed each year. The training must include the rights of patients, fire prevention, universal precautions and prevention, and needs of the specialized populations.
