If you want to work as a nurse aide in California you must get certified by the Aide and Technician Section of the Licensing and Certification Program. You can do this by either challenging the certification exam or by applying for reciprocity.
If you have never been certified before as a nurse aide in any state, then your only option to get certified is to pass all tests of the certification exam. This exam is divided into two parts – a multiple-choice knowledge test and a clinical skills evaluation. The knowledge test is also offered in an oral exam for those who have troubles with reading English.
The certification exam is only available to those who are deemed eligible to apply. One way to establish eligibility is to complete a nurse aide training program or NATP that is approved by the CA Department of Public Health. You can find the programs offered by different training institutions, both private and public. Examples include nursing homes, hospitals, colleges, high schools, assisted living homes, vocational and technical colleges, and rehabilitation centers. There are also some websites that offer online training.
A military-trained medic can also apply for the exam. He must send proof of his training and education to the ATCS before applying. If he was discharged from the military, then he is required to submit a completed form DD-214. If deemed eligible by the ATCS, he may apply without any need for additional training. Registered nurses and licensed vocational nurses may also apply by following the same procedure.
The process of reciprocity allows a certified nurse aide from another state to transfer his certification to California. To be eligible, the applicant must have a current certification and a good standing. He must not have any records that may prevent him from getting certified in CA. The process is much like the one mentioned above. The main difference is that applications through this route are no longer required to take the certification exam.
All applicants must submit the CNA/HHA Initial Application form to:
California Department of Public Health
Licensing and Certification Program
Aide and Technician Certification Section
