Nurse Aide Training and Registry Information

 COVID-19 and the nurse aide shortage

Learn more about how you can address nurse aide surge staffing due to COVID-19.

    Working under the direct supervision of a licensed practical nurse or registered nurse, a certified nurse aide (CNA) does the following:

    • Assists residents with activities of daily living, such as bathing, dressing, or eating.
    • Performs procedures that are within the scope of practice for a CNA.

    The Wisconsin Nurse Aide Registry lists the names of CNAs who, through training, testing and experience, meet federal and/or state requirements to work in Wisconsin.
