WisCaregiver Careers Concludes the Fall CNA Mentoring Webinar Series

The Wisconsin Health Care Association and LeadingAge Wisconsin have received a $6 million grant for WisCaregiver Careers.  WisCaregiver Careers provides four kinds of financial support to nursing facilities, newly trained and certified CNA’s, and their mentors:  Facilities that train and successfully certify CNA candidates will receive $1000 in reimbursement ($700 for the cost of training plus a $300 bonus); Newly certified CNA’s who stay with a facility for at least six months will receive a $500; While not a mandatory part of the program, facilities that choose to implement a mentorship program will receive an additional $500 payment that must be given to the new CNA’s mentor.

At the end of November, WisCaregiver Careers concluded the three-part free webinar series designed to help long-term care providers implement a peer-to-peer CNA mentorship program.  At the final Customized Q&A webinar, our mentoring experts answered participants’ specific questions and led a discussion about common issues/concerns with implementation and training.
