The only way for you to be able to work as a nursing aide in Kansas is if you have a CNA license.  You will only receive one if you are able to pass all the tests in the exams. These examinations are being handled by Health Occupations Credentialing and are composed of a written/oral exam and a skills evaluation. Once you pass all the tests, your name will automatically be added to the state’s Nurse Aide Registry. Before you are allowed to take the exams, you have to become eligible to apply for it first. To do that, you must find a state-approved training program to enroll in. These programs usually take an average of 8 to 13 weeks to finish. Once you are through, you may then send the necessary documents to apply.
