Certified Nurse Aide Refresher Certificate

The CNA in Kansas is required to work at least eight hours every two years for the CNA certificate to remain active. If the CNA does not work for two years, a 21-hour refresher course must be completed. This course meets the state requirement to activate the CNA certificate.

This course includes 12 hours of classroom instruction and 9 hours of laboratory experience. Students will discuss the nurse aide's responsibility in the current health care system and the importance of resident's rights. The student will demonstrate safety measures, infection control procedures, personal care skills, measurement of vital signs and transfers, positioning and turning.

Students enrolled in the refresher course must show proof of certification as a Kansas CNA by bringing a copy of their card on the first day of class.
