A nursing aide is a person who is trained to provide nursing and nursing-related care to patients who are in different health care settings while under the supervision of registered nurses and the medical team. To work as a nursing aide in California, you must receive a CNA certification from the Aide and Technician Certification Section of the Licensing and Certification Program.
As mentioned above, to be a nursing aide you must be properly trained. The best way is to enroll in an NATP that is certified by the state’s Department of Public Health. When you enroll, you will be spending at least 150 hours for your training. Their curriculum are divided into 50 hours of classroom lectures covering 16 different modules and 100 hours of clinical training. You will learn about rights and responsibilities, interpersonal skills, patient care skills, nutrition, vital signs, emergency procedures, death and dying, rehabilitation, and many more.
By completing an approved program, you will become eligible to apply for the National Nurse Aide Assessment Program exam. Only by passing this exam will you receive a CNA certification from the ATCS. This exam however is not only limited to those who completed a certified NATP. Military-trained medics, registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, and other healthcare professionals may also apply for the exam once they are deemed eligible by the ATCS. Before they apply, they must first contact the ATCS to determine their eligibility.
The NNAAP exam is divided into two parts – the written/oral knowledge test and the random clinical skills evaluation. Both of these exams are taken on the same day. Pearson VUE is currently the authorized Testing Company to provide the exams. If you pass both exams, Pearson VUE will forward your name to the ATCS. You can then expect your certification to arrive at your address within 10 days after you passed. If there are no technical problems, you can expect your results to be released on the same day.
Once you receive your certification, it will be your responsibility to keep it active. Your certification must be renewed before it expires. CNAs are required to complete at least 48 hours of in-service/CE to be eligible for renewal. You can complete a maximum of 24 hours of CE online by taking CDPH-approved online courses. You can visit www.cdph.ca.gov to check a complete list of the courses you can enroll in.
