NA Approved Programs by JMT Region as of March 29, 2021

Capital District | Hudson Valley Long Island | Midsouth | Midstate | Midwest | NYC | North Country Mohawk | Western

The New York State Department of Health (DOH) has been identified as the primary agency in New York State responsible for the implementation of the federal regulations of the Nursing Home Reform Law of the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1987 OBRA, PL 100-203).

In conjunction with DOH, the State Education Department (SED) has established guidelines governing approval criteria for programs operating under its jurisdiction.

Those guidelines specify content areas that must be addressed in order for a program to receive operational approval e.g., minimum training hours; qualifications of nurse aide instructors and program coordinators; minimum curriculum requirements; methodology for state (on-site) review; and the competency evaluation program—written and performance skills (NYSDOH certified nurse assisting exam).

Programs must be approved and receive a New York State Nurse Aide Training Program Number in order for program completers to be eligible to take the DOH  Nurse Aide Competency Evaluation administered by Prometric-to become Certified Nurse Aides CNAs-and be entered into the New York State Nurse Aide Registry (NAR).
