For you to be a nursing assistant in the state of Massachusetts, you must have the skills needed to take care of the elderly and the sick. You can get these skills in a nursing assistant training program. You should make sure that the program is approved by the state. The duration of the program will depend on several factors like the schedule of classes.
Once you pass the program, you can try to take the license exams to be a certified nursing assistant. If you want to get your waiver of training, you will need to send a letter of request to Myrtho Vernet-McGuffie. You may contact them at (617) 753-8142.
There are also other ways for you to become eligible to take the exams. U.S. Nurses who wish to become a CNA may directly apply for the exams without the need to undergo nursing assistant training. Nurse aide license holders from other states may also apply for reciprocity if they wish to work here.
Once you are through with your training, you will then be required to take the Nurse Aide State Exams. Normally, these exams are composed of a written and a skills demonstration. In order to get your license, you will have to pass all the tests. If you have any questions regarding the tests, you may contact the State Nurse Aide Testing Office at (781) 979-4010. If you are living outside of the state, then you will have to call them at (800) 962-4337.
