More than 40 state legislators have co-sponsored a bill that seeks to conform state law with federal law regarding hours of instruction for nurse aides. 

Assembly Bill 432 prohibits the Wisconsin Department of Health Services from requiring an instructional program to exceed the federal required minimum total training hours or minimum hours of supervised practical training, which is clinical experience, specified in the federal regulation. The current federal regulation requires no less than 75 hours of training with at least 16 of those hours being supervised practical training.

A public hearing on the bill has not yet been scheduled.
