About the Presenter:

Hellen Adrian is the RN Manager of the Department of Health and Senior Services Health Education Unit and Training Unit. 

The Health Education Unit houses the CNA Registry.  The Training Unit provides training to the new surveyors among many other duties.

Hellen worked as a surveyor and supervisor in the DHSS Region 6 office in Jefferson City for nine years before promoting to the Central Office as Training Coordinator in 2008.  She promoted to her current RN Manager position in October of 2014.

Did You Know? When requesting a challenge exam from DHSS, CNA Examiners may request the 75 question version of the test. This is the same exam that students who take the full course are given. The 50 question exam is still available, and the Examiner can request either version. Questions regarding this should be directed to the Education Unit.
