In addition to free training, the state is offering a $225 incentive to those who take and pass the state CNA exam. Those who obtain employment in a Minnesota nursing home will receive an additional $450 incentive.
Qualifications for CNA Training and Employment
In order to qualify for free training and incentives, participants must be at least 16 years old and fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
