COVID-19 Temporary Staffing

Temporary Medication Aide Training
Nebraska Health Care Association (NHCA) has provided recommendations for health care providers on COVID-19 temporary staffing following Governors Ricketts’ signing of Executive Order No. 20-12 on March 31, 2020.


Direct Care Staff

Direct care staff such as nursing assistants, medication aides, and universal service workers are the superheroes of health care. They may work in a variety of settings including nursing facilities, assisted living facilities, home health, hospice, hospitals, group homes for individuals with developmental disabilities, and schools.

Through education and advocacy, NHCA, NNFA, NALA and the Nebraska Health Care Learning Center support the interests of Nebraska’s direct care workers.
