CNA Refresher is a two day course designed for CNA’s who have held the Kansas Certified Nurse Aide (CNA) credential, but are inactive (certification has lapsed) and wish to reactivate their CNA status.
Currently there are no limitations on how long a CNA certificate has lapsed that affects enrollment eligibility. Students will learn through lecture and lab experience to be refreshed on basic nurse aide skills for competency evaluation.
Attendance for both days is mandatory to successfully complete the course. After successfully completing the course, proper documentation is sent to KDADS to reactivate the CNA certificate.
