The first step in becoming a nursing assistant is the completion of a training program that is approved by the GMCF. The Georgia Medical Care Foundation oversees and manages all the NATPs and the state’s Nurse Aide Registry for this state. It is very important that the CNAs in this state meet the qualifications of the Medicaid healthcare facilities. It is also important that the nursing assistants are able to handle different healthcare settings.
The training programs are offered by colleges, community training centers, private schools, nursing homes, and certain healthcare centers. Their training is composed of laboratory skills training, lectures about the fundamentals of nursing, and clinical duties. Before the student is allowed to proceed to the clinical rotations, he/she must get a 100% rating in the lab. When they are in the clinical area, they will be placed under the care of a RN or a LPN. No instructor will be allowed to handle more than 14 students at a time.
During your training you’ll learn some valuable skills that are required while on the job. Here are some of the primary tasks you will become proficient with: catheter care, range of motion exercises, feeding, transporting patients, measuring & recording vital signs (respiration, blood pressure, pulse, temperature), infection control, Heimlich Maneuver, First Aid, CPR, safety procedures, and restorative care.
If you are a CNA license holder from a different state, you are welcome to apply for reciprocity so you can work in this state. To be able to do this, you must apply for reciprocity. When you are applying, you should have an active license and a good relationship with your state. All those who are applying for reciprocity are also subjected to the background checks. You can reach the state nurse aide registry to learn more about the prerequisites to taking the certification exam and how you can qualify by visiting www.mmis.georgia.gov or calling the local number at (678) 527-3010 or toll-free at (800) 414-4358.
