The Nursing Home Reform Act aims to improve the quality of care provided by healthcare givers, especially nursing aides, to patients in nursing homes, long-term care centers, hospitals, and other healthcare settings. To ensure that this goal was met all nursing aides are now required to complete a training program and pass the competency examination before working in a healthcare setting. Employers are also required to check each applicant’s certification before hiring them.
CNA training programs are offered through nursing homes, residential living facilities, long-term care centers, hospitals, clinics, vocational and technical colleges, government organizations, and private training centers. State-approved programs offer 150 hours of training, which consists of lectures and practical training. Most programs in the state can be completed within 2 to 6 months of continuous training. You can visit www.cdph.ca.gov to get the latest details about class requirements and registry qualifications.
After completing a training program you will become eligible to apply for the certification exam. You can now submit the application form (http://www.asisvcs.com/publications/pdf/070508.pdf) to the Regional Testing Center in your area, along with payment of $90 for the testing fee to schedule for an exam date.

If you are able to pass all the tests your name will be added to the Nurse Aide Registry and you will get your CNA certification.

For those who are current holders of nurse aide licenses issued from a different state, they may work in California if they are approved from reciprocity. When applying, the applicant must have his name in his state’s nurse aide registry with an active status. One must have a good relationship with the state they come from to pass the background checks. If one has records of neglect, patient abuse, malpractice, and the like, it may prevent them from getting approved. Aside from those mentioned above, other requirements that must be met when applying for the state license exams include passing a complete application form, ID photos, fingerprint cards, immunization records and tests undertaken, as well as paying the fees for the tests. If you need answers to questions about how to set up an exam date, or to get the latest certification requirements you can contact the CA Department of Public Health at (916) 327-2445 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
