105 CMR 156.300 - Minimum Curriculum Standards

(A) Each nurse aides training course shall be a minimum of 75 hours and shall include all modules of the minimum standard curriculum as prescribed in guidelines from the Department.
(B) Curriculum organization and teaching strategies are at the discretion of the instructor.
(C) Facilities requiring nurse aides to perform tasks not included in the minimum standard curriculum shall ensure nurse aides are trained to perform these tasks and have successfully demonstrated their ability to perform these tasks. Training for such tasks, including training for tasks related to special resident populations, shall be in addition to the minimum standard curriculum.
(D) Facilities with special resident populations shall use the minimum standard curriculum for nurse aide training but may adapt content and clinical applications to the facility's specific resident population. Such adaptations shall continue to require that nurse aides master all objectives in the minimum standard curriculum. Such skills may be taught with attention to age or other considerations as the resident population dictates.
