Nursing Assistants at CentraCare help provide basic care for patients and residents of long-term care facilities, such as nursing homes. To become a Nursing Assistant in a long-term care facility, you are required to complete a state-approved education program and pass the Minnesota State Exam. Once you complete the training and pass the state exam, we’ll present qualified individuals with a job offer. CentraCare will cover the cost of the exam, training, and pay you for your time while in the class.
