To be eligible to become a certified nurse aide in Louisiana you must finish a training program that has been authorized by the state. Look for a program which has been approved by the state’s Department of Health in order to be eligible to take the state competency exam. During your instruction you will be focusing on learning topics such as transporting patients, mental health, personal care, safety procedures, infection control, communication and therapeutic skills, emergency protocols, and rehabilitation.
You need to be able to pass the physical exam and the state and federal criminal background check before you can be eligible to apply for the certification exams. If you pass both the written and skills portion of the exam, you would be entered on the state’s nurse aide registry and be eligible for employment.
