There are two ways for you to become a nursing assistant in the state of Nevada. One option is to apply for Interstate endorsement while the other is to apply after passing the license exams. Regardless of which method you choose, you must be able to pass the background checks for criminal records in order to work in the state as a nursing assistant. To expedite your application you will need to submit a Fingerprint Card to the state.

nurses-off-duty-7788Before you are allowed to take the license exams, you must be able to complete a state-approved training program. These programs should at least offer 8-13 weeks of training, which should already include the necessary course work.During your course you will complete the required 75 hours of mandatory theory instruction and 16 hours of clinical skills work. During the clinical practice part of your course you will get to use common health care tasks and perform them in a real life setting similar to that found in a nursing home.

Some of the CNA skills you will learn to perform are: range of motion exercises, use of transfer belt, feeding/nourishment, communication & interpersonal skills, infection control, taking vital signs, grooming, safety & emergency procedures, dressing patients, transporting patients, bathing, catheter care, and denture/oral care.

After the training, there will be a final examination to receive certification. Exams consist of a skills demonstration and a written multiple choice test. When you pass both parts you will receive your license and be added to the state registry. You can contact the Board of Nursing to inquire about your application at (888) 590-6726.

When applying through endorsement, you must have an Endorsement form from every state that you have held a certification/license. Each state may have their own set of requirements for requesting the forms. You should contact them to ask them. You can find the contact numbers of the different Registries at http://nevadanursingboard.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/03/CNAstatenurseaideregistrydirectory.pdf.  When you apply, your license should still be valid.
