We also offer state test skills review sessions. The skills review session reviews each of the 25 testable skills for the Ohio Nurse Aide Competency Test (state test). The skills review is open to anyone who has an active nurse aide certificate (received within the past 24 months) who would like a refresher in preparation for taking the state nurse aide exam. Skills review sessions are free to New Beginnings Alumni and $25 for non-alumni.
