Jennie B. Richmond Nursing Home is proud to announce a collaborative agreement with Prometric to become a regional test site for the New York State Nurse Aide Certification Exam. Prometric is a leading provider of technology-enabled testing and assessment solutions to many of the world’s most recognized licensing and certification organizations, academic institutions, and government agencies. They support more than seven million test takers annually at their testing locations in more than 180 countries around the world.
The New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) has contracted with Prometric to develop and administer the New York State (NYS) Nursing Home Nurse Aide Competency Examination and manage the NYS Nursing Home Nurse Aide Registry (NAR). All individuals performing nurse aide duties in a nursing home on a full-time, part-time or contractual basis must meet minimum training and competency requirements in accordance with state and federal regulations and be listed in good standing on the NAR. The majority of nurse aides on the registry become certified by successfully completing a NYS-approved nursing home nurse aide training program and passing the Competency Examination. The exam consists of two parts: 1) a Clinical Skills exam (practical portion); and 2) a Written (oral) exam.
In early December of 2021, Jennie B. Richmond Nursing Home received notification that it was approved for a New York State Nurse Aide Training Program and began to offer training classes in January 2022. Since then, they have had two graduating classes. A challenge the nurse aide candidates was the distance traveling to and from area regional testing sites – some candidates were asked to test 4 hours away. The administration team at Jennie B. felt this limited the chances of candidates passing the exam and as a result, entered into discussions with Prometric to develop a testing area here on the Bertrand Chaffee campus. A computer lab area was created for the written part of the exam and a laboratory area to test clinical skills. “This was no small undertaking as we needed funds to create the computer and simulation laboratories,” reports Carole Francis, Nursing Home Administrator for Jennie B. Richmond Nursing Home. “We saw an opportunity to develop and train new and current staff caring for our residents,” commented Renna S. Thaine, Director of Nursing for Jennie B. Richmond Nursing Home. “This will allow us to develop candidates’ skill sets so that our residents receive the highest quality of care possible. This is our commitment to them and the communities we deliver care in.”
Training coursework is held regularly throughout the year and paid for by the organization. The next CNA training course will begin on August 1; applications are due by July 25. To learn more about the CNA training program or to apply, please email email@example.com.

Are you looking to find a job and also help out your community? You may think you need a college degree to work in a field like health care. Although many employers look for prior experience or certificates to fill health care jobs, some health care positions require none at all. In fact, they can be learned through on-the-job training. The health sector is one of the best places to get your foot in the door before moving up a very diverse career ladder that offers the promise of long-term job security. Individuals in these entry-level positions support physicians and nurses in many ways. For example, Personal Care Aides assist with non-physical resident care, escort residents to appointments, keep residents’ rooms neat, set up equipment, store and move supplies, as well as assist elderly residents with making beds, doing laundry, passing trays at mealtimes and engaging the elderly in social conversations. Oftentimes, individuals in this position train to move up to the position of a Certified Nurse Assistant.
Jennie B. Richmond Nursing Home’s Certified Nursing Assistant training program is a great way to gain valuable hands-on clinical experience in the field of nursing care. Jennie B.’s program is free and requires minimal qualifications. Certified Nursing Assistants provide direct resident care and perform routine tasks under the supervision of nursing and medical staff. They may assist with some procedures, as well as report on any changes to a patient’s physical, mental and emotional condition. Trainees must complete a state-approved education program and pass their state’s competency exam to become certified.
Recently, Jennie B. Richmond Chaffee Nursing Home in Springville graduated five new Certified Nursing Assistants from their training program held in March. “This is our second class of trainees and we are happy to see them strive and succeed,” states Renna Thaine, Director of Nursing for Jennie B. Richmond Nursing Home.
As health care continues to grow as an industry, so will the need for workers in a variety of roles—many of which won’t even require you to have a college degree. Are you trying to get your foot in the door, but aren’t sure where to start? Jennie B. Richmond Nursing Home is actively recruiting for a variety of positions such as registered nurses (RNs), Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs), certified nursing assistants (CNAs), personal care aides (PCAs) and screeners. Our next CNA Training course is starting soon. Training coursework is held regularly throughout the year and paid for by the organization. The next CNA training course will begin on May 2; applications are due by April 25. To learn more about the CNA training program or to apply, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
