Need a new nurse aide program, to report programmatic or instructor changes, or request a lab/instruction area relocation?  We have you covered!  Click on our simple form covers all your reporting needs. Please remember to report all changes or hours you have completed may not count towards the required course completion hours.  

Special note for dual credit instructors:  Dual credit nurse students must be enrolled in NAA100 or HST104 in the KCTCS System.  The Health Science Program of Studies lists this course as "Medicaid Nurse Aide", however this is not the same as MNA100 in the KCTCS system.  Also, the Patient Care Technician pathway with KDE/OCTEST will not qualify students to take the Medicaid Nurse Aide Competency Exam to be a State Registered Nurse Aide.
New to Dual Credit?  Information and your local college dual credit contacts contacts are happy to help!
