If you are looking for a way to start a career in the field of health, then you should think about becoming a nursing assistant. There are three ways for you to become a nursing assistant in California. You can:
• Complete a CNA training program
• Apply as an equivalence-trained nursing assistant
• Apply for nurse aide reciprocity
CNA training programs in this state are approved and monitored by the state’s Department of Public Health. These programs are required to offer their students 150 hours of training, which are divided into theories and practical training. It will cover 16 different modules like infection control, communication skills, basic and personal care, safety and emergency procedures, and many more. To be accepted into one, you must:
• Be at least 18 years old
• Have at least a high school diploma or a GED
• Speak and understand Basic English
• Have a clean record
• Be complete of all necessary immunizations and have a negative TB test result
Completing an approved program will make you eligible to apply for the National Nurse Aide Assessment Program Exam. If you pass both the written (oral) multiple-choice knowledge test and the practical skills evaluation, you will get certified. Only certified nursing assistants are allowed to work in an approved nursing facility.
People with different educational backgrounds can become a nursing assistant. Registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, or military medics are allowed to become CNAs by challenging the NNAAP exam. If they apply to become an equivalency-trained nursing assistant, they must provide proof of training and education to the ATCS for them to take the exam without any additional training.
The process of reciprocity is only for CNAs who are currently certified in another state’s Nurse Aide Registry. This process allows them to transfer their certification to California and receive a new one issued by the ATCS. When applying, the applicant must have a valid certificate and was able to maintain a clean record. He must also pass the criminal background checks that will be done in federal and state levels.
