If you would like to work as a nursing assistant in the state of Louisiana, you need to become a certified nursing assistant first. To achieve it, you should successfully finish a state-approved training program. The training program lasts only for a few weeks and should be composed of both a classroom and clinical sessions in order to provide you with the necessary skills and knowledge of nursing aide work. After finishing the course, you would then be eligible to take the state competency exam which leads to a certification. The state will not allow you to work in any healthcare center if you were not able to get your name entered on the nurse aide registry. Those whose names are listed with an active status and eligible to be employed are those who were able to complete the necessary training and pass the license exams.
The validity of your license will expire every two years. If you wish to continue working as a nursing assistant, you must have worked for at least 8 hours with pay while under the supervision of a registered nurse. The healthcare center that you worked in should be approved by the state’s DHH. To improve productivity and make posting work history to the registry easier, nursing homes are now required to use a paperless system called LARS. This system way implemented last April 2, 2012. If you any application forms were still submitted before that time, the registry will still accept it but will contact you regarding about the new system. You can learn more about the registry and search their directory to check certification verification at www.labenfa.com. You can also try calling Shirley Smith, at (225) 342-5779 with any additional questions you have about curriculum and license requirements.
