I didn't read through all these posts completely, so I apologize if this has been said already. MN and WI do not have reciprocity anymore, as of summer '09. If you take your CNA in WI, you CAN work in MN, but if you take your CNA class in MN, you CANNOT work in WI. WI upped their hours for the class, so MN is 40 hours less than WI now. So if you think you may want to work in WI at some point, take your CNA class there. I took mine in MN because that's where I'm attending school for my LPN, but that was a bad move, because I cannot work in WI. There is a home just a few miles from my house in WI that I want to work at, but I would have to take the entire course over and pay for it and the test again.
