Performance Skills Videos

Performance Skills Videos for Evaluating Certified Nurse Aide Training

The primary purpose of the videos is to demonstrate the skills that must be observed when evaluating the performance of the manual skill component of the Illinois Nurse Aide Competency Examination. All training program instructors and evaluators are responsible for assuring that all CNA students are competent to successfully perform all 21 Manual Performance Skills as part of the Nurse Assistant Competency Examination in the State of Illinois.

The Illinois Nurse Aide Training Skill Evaluation DVD was developed as a joint effort between the Illinois Department of Public Health, the Southern Illinois University Nurse Aide Testing Project, and the John A. Logan College CNA Training Program.
