Training Requirements by State

PHI has documented the training standards in each state for the three main occupations that make up the direct-care workforce.

Home Health Aide Training Requirements

Though 16 states exceed the federal minimum for training hours, only 6 of those meet the standard suggested by the Institute of Medicine of 120 hours.

Nurse Aide Training Requirements

Despite the fact that many states have gone beyond the minimum federal requirements, 20 states still operate with requirements that have not changed in over twenty years.

Personal Care Aide Training Requirements

For Personal Care Aides –who constitute the fastest-growing occupation in the nation—training standards vary considerably from state to state.
