There are different requirements that must be complied first before you can become a nursing aide. Some of the requirements may take you a couple of years to accomplish. For example, you must be at least 18 years of age to enroll in a training program and have a high school diploma or something that is equivalent to it. The CNA training programs that you enroll in should be approved by the state to make sure that you will be able to apply and take the license exams after you complete your training. It will take you about 6 months to complete your training, depending on the schedules of the program you select.

In order to get your license, you have to pass all the exams. You can also have an oral exam instead of a written as the first part of your exam. To do this, you must send a letter of request during your application. If you pass the license exams, you will receive a notice along with your certification 14 days after you have taken the exams. This will depend on the completeness of your documents during your application. The request for the transcript of records sometimes cause a delay in the release of the results since it takes a few days for them to process.
