Nursing Assistant Mandatory Session

All prospective nursing assistant students are required to attend one of the Mandatory Admission Prerequisite Sessions (MAPS) to complete the required Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) regulations.  The state of Illinois requires all nursing assistant students to have a fingerprint background check completed and submitted before starting an NAD (CNA) course.  Sessions are scheduled at the RVC main campus Health Sciences Center (HSC) every month throughout the fall, spring, and summer semesters.

PLEASE NOTE:  Students wanting more information on the Certified Nursing Assistant course are encouraged to contact Amanda Lonsway at or Cathy Nation at
