Becoming a nursing aide is considered to be the fastest, easiest, and most affordable way to start a career in health care.

The process of becoming a nursing aide in California begins by receiving education and training from a CDPH-certified NATP. Your training will consist of lectures and clinical training while under the supervision of certified CNA instructors. Approved programs offer at least 150 hours of training. Depending on which program you choose, it can take you a few weeks to complete your training.
If you wish to make the most out of your training period and further improve your knowledge and skills, you can enroll in an HHA training program. Since you are already attending an NATP you will be allowed to enroll in a 40-hour HHA program. The hours are divided equally into lectures and practical training and will be supplemental to the lessons you receive from the NATP.

Those who pass the NNAAP exam will have their names entered into the Nurse Aide Registry, which is a list of people who have met the federal and state training and testing requirements. The ATCS will also send your CNA certificate within 10 business days after passing.
CNA and HHA certificates must be renewed every 2 years. The state requires you to complete a minimum of 8 hours of paid work and attend in-service training or CE. If you are certified as a CNA and an HHA, the in-service/CE that you complete can be counted for both certifications.
