There are not a lot of people wanting to know how to become a nursing assistant. The first step that they need to do is to look for a training program to enroll in. The program must be approved by the state since other training programs will not be recognized. By completing a state-approved program, you will be able to apply for the NNAAP examinations. Once you pass all the tests, your name will be added to the Nursing Assistant Registry, which is the master list of all the CNAs who are allowed to work in healthcare facilities.
When you enroll in a program, you will be spending most of your time in classroom lectures and on-the-job training. In order to complete your training, you will need to meet the 130 hours of required training. You must not miss any training sessions to meet the required hours. You will learn about different nursing concepts such as emergency procedures, infection control, mental health, rehabilitation, and assisting in daily activities.
Each state has an authorized conductor for the examinations. For this one, it is Pearson Vue. The license exams are composed of a written and a skills demonstration on the nursing skills that were taught to you. If you want to find out more about the exams, you can go to their site at www.pearsonvue.com. You can also get a copy of the application forms from their site.

The state offers reciprocity to those who are certified in another state or who do not currently have an active license with the state but have previously been listed on the nurse aide registry. To apply the applicant will need to submit a form and if accepted pay a reciprocity fee of $26.00 along with a retesting fee of $101.00. Applicants will get one opportunity to pass both parts of the exams in order to become re-certified and eligible to work. Those who fail to pass both parts in one attempt will need to once again enroll in a training program.
