If you are looking to work as a nurse aide in California, it will help to know what the requirements are for a CA-issued CNA certification. According to the law, a person can only work as a nurse aide if he is certified. The task of certifying nurse aides in this state falls to the Aide and Technician Certification Section of the Licensing and Certification Program.
The first step in becoming a nurse aide is to enroll in an NATP. You must only enroll in a training program that is approved by the California Department of Public Health. Each program will have its own set of requirements. Some schools even certain background experiences before you can enroll.
Approved programs in California are required to offer no less than 150 hours of training. These hours are divided into 50 hours of lectures and 100 hours of on-the-job training. Programs are allowed to increase the training hours, provided that they give CDPH their lesson plan for the extended hours.
After completing the NATP, you can now apply for the CNA Certification exam. This consists of a written/oral exam and a return demonstration of randomly selected nurse aide skills. If you feel that you are not yet ready or able to take the exam, you are given a two year period to take it. You are also given 3 attempts to pass. If you fail the third try, you will have to undergo retraining before you can reapply for the exams.
When you pass all the tests, your certificate will be sent to your address within 10 working days after you pass. To keep your eligibility to work as a nurse aide, you must renew your certification every 2 years. CNAs are required to provide nursing services for pay, as well as complete 48 hours of in-service or continuing education. You must only take CE Units from approved educational institutions. You can visit www.cdph.ca.gov to get a complete list of approved CE programs.
