It is not that hard to become a certified nursing aide in Louisiana if you know what requirements to meet. The first and most important requirement is to enroll in a CNA training program. To ensure that the programs are offering the proper education and training, for them to be approved, they will have to submit their curriculum to the Registry for it to be reviewed. During instruction you will be undergoing both classroom and clinical sessions which should teach you the basic skills and knowledge which is required for this job. The training lasts only for a few weeks and costs only a few hundred dollars.
In order for the nursing assistants to have a uniform training, the Registry has given a list of topics that must be included in their training. Examples of such topics include infection control, communication and therapeutic skills, personal care, mental health and rehabilitation, promotion of safety, and emergency protocols and procedures. As for the number of training hours, the Registry has required that the programs offer a minimum of 80 hours of training. These hours must include at least 40 hours of clinical exposure.
After passing a program, the fresh graduate will then be allowed to apply for the license exams. When applying, he/she must submit fingerprint cards, government issued IDs, passport-sized pictures, and the payment for the exam fees. To ensure that you are not carrying any disease, especially TB, you will be required to undergo TB testing and submit the results.The exams are made up of two parts which include a written and a demonstration part. Applicants must successfully complete both parts and meet all other requirements in order to be licensed. Active status is awarded for a two year period and you will need to show work verification of one 8 hour shift on the job to remain active. You can call Shirley Smith, at (225) 342-5779 with any questions you have about current rules.
