Because of the continuing shortfall of qualified nursing assistants statewide, Minnesota is once again providing tuition-free Nursing Assistant training and testing through the Next Generation Nursing Assistant – Train. Test. Work. initiative, according to a news release.
Minnesota State College Southeast is offering the training, which will save participants more than $1,500. Courses start on Oct. 9 in Red Wing and Oct. 23 in Winona. Classes take place on campus and online via Zoom over a six-week period. Additional courses will be offered in 2024.
