There are different requirements that must be met before you can take on the state CNA exams and become a nursing aide. First of all, to become eligible to take the exams you must complete a state-approved training program. These programs will take you, more or less, 6 months to complete. You must have at least 75 hours of classes and 100 hours of skills training to pass the program. The next important requirement is passing the background checks that will be done at both federal and state levels. Having records of theft, offenses involving drugs and violence, neglect, patient abuse, and malpractice will greatly affect your application. The latter offenses are only applicable to nursing assistants applying for endorsement.
