A few geographically limited studies have indicated that training of direct care workers may be insufficient. Using the first-ever nationally representative sample of certified nursing assistants (CNAs) from the 2004 National Nursing Assistant Survey (NNAS), this descriptive article provides an overview of the type of initial training and continuing education received by CNAs working in nursing homes, reports CNAs' assessments of the adequacy of their training, and identifies perceived training needs from the points of view of CNAs. Findings could be used to inform changes to the initial training and continuing education curriculum for this essential labor workforce. (Contains 2 notes and 6 tables.)
