To fulfill the training requirements of OBRA for nurse aides working in nursing facilities and skilled nursing facilities, completion of a minimum 75-hour course and a written and skills competency examination is required. The written exam is a computerized test unless arrangements are made at least two weeks prior to testing. You MUST bring your ORIGINAL Social Security card and a photo ID to testing or you will not be allowed to test. If you forget the required identification, you are late, or you miss or are dismissed from your scheduled session for any reason, you will not be allowed to test and you will not receive a refund. Refunds are issued with two business days' notice only. Registration deadline is 4:00pm the Friday before the scheduled testing session. It is recommended you register for the written and skills exams for the same date and time. On test days you must show up before 5:00pm (4:45pm) if you are scheduled for Wednesday night testing and before 8:00am (7:45am) if you are scheduled for Thursday morning testing. You will not be allowed to test if you show up late and you will NOT receive a refund. Students are to wait by the soda machine in the lower level of Grundy Hall to be then taken to their assigned testing area.
