If you want to become a certified nursing assistant you must meet a few different requirements like providing certain documents, going through background checks, enrolling and completing a training course, and passing the competency test. If you have not yet received any instructions, then you will be required by the state of Tennessee to enroll in a CNA training program that has been approved.
Approved classes will need to offer the proper amount of hourly instruction which is currently at least 75 hours. In addition they must teach at least 25 nursing skills in their course curriculum. Programs are to be administered by a registered nurse and will provide you with both hands-on clinical experience and class lectures.
For the competency exams you will be tested on 5 of the skills you learned during class training. You will need to successfully demonstrate that you know the proper health care procedures for the skills chosen during the test. You will also need to have at least a 70% or above score on the written exam. Those who pass are placed on the registry for two years before needing to renew. Renewal is accomplished by sending in verification that you were employed as a nurse aide for at least one 8 hour shift.
