NOTE:  The Health Care Worker Background Check Act (an Illinois state law) prevents many health care employers from hiring individuals as a direct care worker if an individual has certain criminal convictions. Some may be given a "waiver" thru the State of Illinois to work in the health care industry.  A waiver does not change your criminal record - but allows you to work in some facilities. 
 
A WAIVER must be received before attending the CNA class.  You can go on line:
