CARE U for Direct Care Staff

Our CARE U Trainers are people who:

  • Teach or provide staff development, maybe as a nursing home staff educator, community health worker, CNA program instructor or nursing faculty
  • Are located across Wisconsin
  • Attended Train-the-Trainer online sessions in December 2020
  • Have simulation equipment and other materials to facilitate active learning exercises
  • Work with other Trainers in their area to offer CARE U local conferences

We plan to offer the CARE U Train-the-Trainer program again in 2024. Please contact us at if you would like to be notified of future offerings.

Direct care staff participants in CARE conferences say:

There was not a thing that I wasn’t interested in. It was an excellent event! Even the simple tips. I told my manager some and she said, wow. … There’s not a lot of information out there for CNAs to grab onto.

I feel very lucky to have attended and can’t wait to take what I’ve learned and apply it to my residents.
