Free COVID-19 Training and Resources for Nursing Homes

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Targeted COVID-19 Training for Frontline Nursing Home Staff and Management is a great resource for nursing home staff to put the latest information regarding infection control, COVID-19 preparedness, resident-centered care, vaccine distribution, and other important topics into practice.  

These resources were designed to help nursing home teams access the free, on-demand trainings and celebrate the staff who complete them. Materials include:  

  • A one-stop-shop User Guide (also available in Spanish) contains everything your nursing home needs to access and complete the training. The User Guide walks you through a pre-training checklist, registration, course selection, contacts and more. 
  • A Kudos Kit contains social media messages and graphics, a press release template, printable graphics and more to acknowledge the hard work and dedication of staff who take the critical step to complete the trainings. These items will help your nursing home teams celebrate their accomplishments internally, while also promoting them to families and community members, social media followers and local media.
