Detach OBRA from Nurse Assistant Education & Certification

We did it! On April 25, 2024, we held our first virtual meeting to discuss separating OBRA from nurse assistant education and certification. The event was well-attended, and we shared valuable insights on this important topic. The meeting was not recorded so that everyone could feel at ease sharing their viewpoints without any concerns.


Don't worry if you missed the first meeting! We're keeping the momentum going with our second webinar on May 29, 2024, at 1 PM PT / 4 PM ET. We are looking for OBRA content experts and individuals with knowledge or experience in lobbying or political connections. Your voice as a CNA or nurse assistant student is important!


Here are a few ways you can support our efforts to detach OBRA from nurse aide education and certification:
