The first step in becoming a nurse aide in this state is by enrolling in a CNA training course. The course must be approved by the state for you to become eligible to take the license exams afterwards. A state-approved program must offer its students at least 120 hours of training hours of lectures and clinical exposure. This clinical training will take place either in a hospital or a nursing home. Most programs can be completed within 6 months, depending on the program you enroll in. There will be cases that it will be shorter or longer than the average time.

According to the rules, you will not be able to take the exams if you fail the background check. You will also not get any refunds for failing any part of the exams. Other requirements for application include passing 2 ID photos, fingerprint cards, high school, diploma, as well as the payment for the fees for the exams. You must also be at least 18 years old to qualify for the exams. If you do pass the exams, you will be notified and be given your license within 14 days after taking the exams.

CNAs from other states are no longer required to take the exams. They will also have different requirements that must be submitted if they wish to work in the state. Examples of these requirements include submitting the results for the exams, a copy of the certification, and the background check results. You can call the Florida Nursing Assistant Registry at (850) 245-4125 with any additional questions.
