Free Certified Nursing Assistant Training in Nebraska

The state of Nebraska has experienced a severe shortage of Certified Nursing Assistants.  Because of this, there are now several nursing homes in the state offering free CNA Training.  Some of the nursing homes may only offer classes just a few times a year and most require that you work for them a set period of time after receiving your certification. 

You can also receive free CNA training in Nebraska through Job Corps if you qualify.  Individuals must contact them directly to see if they meet the criteria for attending the free classes.

Following are some other prerequisites to training:

  • Be at least 18 years of age
  • Can speak and understand English
  • High school diploma or GED equivalent (depends on the training provider)
  • No criminal convictions (especially acts or behavior that violates moral standards)
  • State identification and social security card
  • A physical exam
  • Negative TB test or chest x-ray
  • Immunization (MMR, Varicella, Hepatitis B, Meningitis)
