There are a number of requirements that must be done before you can be a CNA. The first thing that you must do is to enroll in a state-approved NATP. The program you select should be approved by the Georgia Medical Care Foundation to make sure that you will be allowed to apply for the license exams afterwards.
While involved in your training you will receive hands-on skills experience that is set in an environment similar to a health care center. This way you can learn how to perform the necessary tasks used on the job in a clinical setting. Skills, tasks and procedures you will practice include: safety practices, infection control, measuring & recording vital signs (blood pressure, respiration, temperature, pulse), transporting residents, catheter care/maintenance, first aid, Heimlich Maneuver, CPR, and range of motion exercises.
Passing the license exams is a crucial step in becoming a nursing assistant since the state does not allow an individual to work permanently as a nursing assistant without a CNA license. If you are already working as one in a nursing home, you must be able to finish your training and pass the license exams within 4 months from the start of your work.
Nursing assistant license holders can also work in Georgia by apply for reciprocity. When they apply, they should still have a valid license. Since those who are applying for reciprocity will undergo background checking, they should also have a good relationship with the state they come from. Having records like negligence, patient abuse, or malpractice can be used to reject their application. For more information, you should contact the GMCF at (678) 527-3010.
