Federal law prohibits these charges from being imposed on the nurse aide.

Nursing Care Facilities (Medicare and Medicaid) are responsible for the full payment of training and testing costs for individuals employed or offered employment at the time the individual enters a Nurse Aide Training and Competency

Evaluation Program (CEP). An individual who does not have an employment relationship with a facility at the time the individual enters a NATCEP or CEP, but becomes employed, or obtains an offer of employment within 12 months of completing the program, will be reimbursed for the costs of training and testing by the facility that employs or offers employment to this individual.

This reimbursement will be made on a pro rata basis for the period during which the individual is employed as a nurse aide. The nurse aide will be reimbursed for half the costs of training and testing after the nurse aide has worked at the facility as a nurse aide for 130 hours and the remaining half of the training and testing costs after the nurse aide has worked an additional 130 hours.

The hours start accruing when the individual has successfully tested and is listed on the registry. This verifies that the individual has completed the program and qualifies for the training and testing reimbursement.
