Map of locations of nursing assistant training schools in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania:
To be able to work in Pennsylvania as a nursing assistant your name must be listed in their state nurse aide registry. For it to be entered, you must first complete state approved training and pass the license examinations. Additionally, there are some requirements that must be met before you can take the exams such as submitting a completed application, photo identification, and passing the criminal background check.
The nursing assistant competency exam is a two part test. It consists of a manual skills demonstration part and a written test. For the manual skills test you will need to demonstrate in a live setting five of the skills you learned during your instruction class. For the written component you will be required to answer fifty multiple choice questions based on nursing related duties and procedures. Those who pass both tests and have met all other criteria are added to the registry and eligible to work. Test sites can be administered at a variety of locations including the American Red Cross, nursing facilities, vocational training schools, and at permanent testing sites. Call the American Red Cross at 800-795-2350 to find license exam test sites near you.
