State looks to close CNA gap

A state program could help put more people in classrooms at assisted care centers in Door and Kewaunee Counties by taking away one major hurdle: money. The WisCaregiver Career Program can help cover the costs associated with tuition, background checks, program fees, materials and more. Tonya Moore from the Northeast Wisconsin Technical College Luxemburg Regional Center says it is a program many people do not know about when they are choosing education and career paths.

The program requires grant recipients to work at a qualified assisted care facility for at least six months following graduation, which Moore says helps fill the needs at places like the Algoma Long Term Care Unit.
