Chapter 3701-19 of the OAC for the State of Ohio establishes the requirements for Ohio’s Nurse Aide Training and Competency Evaluation program. These requirements mandate all NAs working on a regular basis in Ohio’s LTCFs must complete an Ohio Department of Health-approved 75-hour TCEP and pass a competency evaluation test conducted by the director.
Individuals may work as Nurse Aides; Home Health Care Aides or Patient Care Assistants.
Federal regulations require that the training consist of no less that 75 hours. This must be performed by, or under the general supervision of, a registered nurse who has a minimum of two years of nursing experience, at least one year of which must be long-term care; this must include hours in certain nursing skill areas and include at least 16 hours of supervised practical (clinical) training.
