Nurse Aide Market Survey
A nurse aide training provider must make an application and be approved by the Pennsylvania Department of Education. Part of the required application is a market survey to assess the demand for nurse aides in the training area and the need for a training program. The 22-question survey will help NPRC identify where the need is by county and how much need there is for nurse aides. There are also questions about whether a nursing home or other health care facility is willing to work with NPRC on clinical rotations and other training needs.
