Veterans Home Offers New Licensed Nursing Assistant Course

10-week program; applications due April 7

Press release

The New Hampshire Veterans Home is now accepting applications for their new, in-house Licensed Nursing Assistant (LNA) course. Students will earn hourly wages while learning in the expense-paid course. The competitive salary includes a 15% enhancement of the base pay available for all Veterans Home nursing positions.

The 10-week LNA course begins on Tuesday, April 19 at the New Hampshire Veterans Home campus at 139 Winter Street in Tilton. Classes will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9 AM to 1:30 PM, and Fridays from 6:45 AM to 3:15 PM. 

Students who make a commitment to providing exceptional care at the Veterans Home will receive education in both a classroom setting and through clinical hours. Additional paid hours may be available during the training period, up to 29.5, including nights and weekends. 

Successful completion of the course prepares students for the Board of Nursing license exam. After completing training and passing the exam, students will apply for full- or part-time positions to serve our state’s veterans.

Applications for the LNA course are due by Thursday, April 7. Applications are available at click Careers; click NH State Government Job Opportunities; click Search for Jobs; enter Tilton in the Location box; click Search Jobs; and apply for one of the six LNA Trainee positions.

The 15% enhancement to base pay and the paid education program are both firsts in the history of the New Hampshire Veterans Home. Additional information is available from the Veterans Home’s Human Resources team at or 603 527-4400.
