According to the law, only certified nurse aides are allowed to work in CDPH-approved nursing facilities. To become certified one must complete proper training and pass the license examinations.

student-of-health-care-instructionTo help you prepare for the NNAAP exam, as make you eligible to apply for it, you will need to enroll in a CNA training course that is approved by the CDPH. Training consists of 150 hours which are divided into 50 hours of lectures and 100 hours of supervised training. Approved courses are handled by registered nurses with 2 years of nursing experience and some background about teaching adults.

You will learn different concepts that you will use when interacting with instructors to help you gain the necessary skills to handle patients. If you have spent around 16 hours in skills training, you can then try those skills out in a real health care setting. You can get the primary experience at a hospital or a nursing home.

To be enrolled in a course you must:

•    Be physically and mentally capable of taking care of patients
•    Be at least 18 years old
•    Be a high school graduate or at least possess a GED
•    Have no criminal records (http://www.cdph.ca.gov/certlic/occupations/Documents/ATCS%2098-4.pdf) that will prevent you from getting certified

If you want to become a nurse aide in California then you will have to challenge the National Nurse Aide Assessment Program. This is an examination program that is designed to evaluate the competency of nurse aide candidates. It will test them in both skill and knowledge. This examination is made up of a written (oral) knowledge test and a skills evaluation exam. Candidates must pass all the exams to get certified.

students-in-nurse-aide-demonstrationThe NNAAP examinations is not only limited to those who were able to complete an approved course. Registered nurses, LPNs, nursing students and graduates are also allowed to apply for the exam. Before they send in their application forms to the Regional Testing Center, they must first submit proof of education and training to the Aide and Technician Certification Section at MS 3301, P.O. Box 997416, Sacramento, California 95899-7416.

Your training is only valid for 2 years. You must pass all the tests of the NNAAP exams before it expires. If you fail in one part, you will be given another 2 attempts to reapply and retake the test you failed. If you fail after the 3rd time, you will be required to complete another training program.

Once you are certified, you will be required to renew your certification every 24 months. Failure to renew will result in the expiration of your certificate and you will lose your eligibility to work as a nurse aide. A notice is sent out by the CDPH at least 4 months before your certification expires. To avoid any problems when renewing, please inform the CDPH is you change your name or address.

If you already are a CNA from a different state, then you can apply for reciprocity. Apply for reciprocity will allow you to work in the state as a nursing aide. You should still have an active status and a good background to get approval from the board.

To receive additional details about the current requirements for certification you can contact the California Nursing Aide Registry by calling (916) 327-2445 or via email at cna@cdph.ca.gov. To ensure a training school meets all curriculum standards you can call the (TPRU) Training Program Review Unit at (916) 552-8873.
