California is one of the best places to become a CNA. Nursing aides in this state are very in demand and receive some of the highest salaries in the file of health. Becoming a nursing aide will also open new job opportunities for you.
To become a nursing aid, you must complete a state-approved CNA program and pass the NNAAP exam. The approved programs in this state are required to offer no less than 150 hours of training. Their curriculum is composed of lectures and clinical practice. Before the students proceed to the practical portion of their training, they must cover 16 hour learning:
• Infection Control
• Medical Terms
• Human Anatomy
• Communication Skills
• Patients’ Rights
• Patients’ Independence
• Safety and Emergency Procedures
CNA programs are required to be coordinated by a qualified registered nurse. An LPN can also become a clinical instructor only if the head of the program is a licensed nurse.
After completing the necessary training, the next step is to apply for the NNAAP exam. Candidates are required to pass both the written/oral knowledge test and the skills evaluation exam. They will only have three attempts to pass. These attempts must be made within 2 years after completing the candidate’s training.
If you wish to get ahead of the rest of the competition, it you can also train to become a home health aide at the same time. If you plan to enroll in both programs at the same time, you will only need to enroll in the 40-hour HHA program instead of the 120-hour programs. HHA training will act as supplemental training to the training you receive as a nursing aide.
CNAs in this state are required to renew their certification every 2 years. They must keep their certification active to keep their eligibility to work. No CNA is allowed to work with an expired certification. To renew a certification you must provide proof of employment and the completion of 48 hours of training. You can download a copy of the renewal forms by going to this site:http://www.asisvcs.com/publications/pdf/070512.pdf.
