Certified Nurse Aide Class

ALH100- 1S221 5 credit hours, Manhattan Area Technical College

WHEN: Spring 2018 Semester – January 11 to April 12, 2018 during 7th hour, Manhattan High School

Thursdays, beginning January 11, 2:45-5:45 pm at MATC, Nursing Lab/Classroom


WHAT: This course follows the curriculum specified by the Kansas Department for Aging and Disability Services (KDADS) for instruction of persons planning employment as certified nurse aides in long-term care facilities (nursing homes), or who plan to pursue health careers. Outside-of-class reading and homework assignments are required. After successful completion of the course, students are eligible to take the state certifying exam for the CNA (Certified Nurse Aide) in Kansas.


NOTES: (1) CNAs under 18-years-old may not operate any patient/resident lift/hoist devices, under the Child Labor Provisions of the Fair Labor Standards Act, Department of Labor Wage and Hour Division. This may impact employment options for CNAs under age 18.

(2) CNAs are eligible for employment for 24 months following the date the certificate is issued. To extend the eligibility period, the CNA must be employed to perform nurse assistant tasks for at least eight hours in the 24-month period. CNA certificates do not expire, but they become inactive if the employment requirement is not met. The process of re-activating an inactive certificate requires a refresher course, which may be an additional expense. Generally professional schools (nursing, etc.) require active CNA status at time of application and admission.
