On March 26, one student graduate and two staff members from Quality CNA Training were interviewed by Fox 11 News regarding Wisconsin Senate Bill 103.
Senate Bill 103 proposes lowering the minimum required training hours for nurse assistant training from 120 to 75. State Sen. Rob Cowles, the lead author of the bill, says he is proposing this bill as a way to help with the workforce shortage medical facilities are facing. However, Paulene Kipke and Christine Wilke from Quality CNA Training, as well as QCNAT graduate Katie Johnson, spoke in the interview about how lowering the standards would negatively impact the level of care that nursing home residents and hospital patients would receive.
