One of the best ways to enter the medical field nowadays is to become a CNA. With the increase in the elderly population there is also an increase in the demand for nursing aides. According to the Nursing Home Reform Act, which is now a part of the OBRA of ’87, all nursing aides must be certified and listed on the Nurse Aide Registry.
To get on the Nurse Aide Registry, you must pass the competency exam. This exam consists of a knowledge test and a clinical skills evaluation. You will be given the option to take either the written or the oral version of the knowledge test. To get certified, you must pass all the tests. The Oklahoma Department of Health has contracted the D&S Diversified Technologies to help conduct the exam; you may get more information about the exams by visiting their website at www.hdmaster.com.
Before you can take on the exam, you will have to pass a state-certified CNA program. Your time in the program will be spent in classrooms for lectures and at nursing homes for clinical practice. Nursing students, graduates, and foreign-trained nursing students may also apply for the exam without undergoing any additional training.
If you enroll in a CNA training program, you will learn all the things that you will need in order to take care of the patients with their needs. You will learn about the basic nursing skills, emergency procedures, resident rights, infection control, as well as personal care. You must meet a certain number of hours so that you can complete the program. Once you complete the program, you can then try to take on the state exams.
The state of Oklahoma is also open to CNAs who come from other states. If they wish to transfer and work there, they can apply for reciprocity. It is important that when they apply, they must have a clean record as well as a valid certification. To protect the clients, they will also have to pass the national background check for criminal records. The application forms can be downloaded at http://www.ok.gov/health/Protective_Health/Health_Resources_Development_Service/Nurse_Aide_and_Nontechnical_Services_Worker_Registry/Nurse_Aide_Registry_Applications_and_Forms/index.html#NATCEPApps.
Once you are certified, it will be your responsibility to keep your record in the NAR updated. It is important that you notify the registry if you ever change your name or address so to avoid any problems with you not receiving the recertification forms, which are sent out at least 1 month before the expiration of your certification.
You will have to complete another training program and take the competency exam if you fail to work for at least 8 hours as a paid nursing assistant during that time. In addition to the required number of hours, you must also send the affidavit of legal residence to the Department of Health.
