A Note on State Testing


Testing to become a State Registered Nurse Aide or Certified Nurse Aid (CNA) is provided by the state of Kentucky and not University of the Cumberlands. The Medicaid Nurse Aide Training (NRSOL 100) course is designed to give you the skills, knowledge and experience you need to pass that test.
