If you are looking for a way to enter the medical field, then one of the best ways to do so is to become a Certified Nurse Aide. As a CNA you will work under the supervision of registered nurses. Your tasks as a CNA will depend on what they will assign to you. You can become a nurse aide in California through the following:
• Completing a CDPH-approved 150-hour training program
• Completing military training as a medic
• Learning the Fundamentals of Nursing as an RN, LPN, or other healthcare professions
• Becoming a CNA in another state and apply for reciprocity
Meeting any of the first three options will make a candidate eligible to apply for the National Nurse Aide Assessment Program exam. By challenging and passing the NNAAP exam, the candidate will receive his or her certification from the ATCS. The NNAAP exam consists of a written (oral) exam and a practical skills evaluation. Both parts must be passed to get certified.
Every candidate is given only 3 attempts to pass. A failed part means a failed NNAAP exam. The candidate will have to reapply and retake the exam that he failed. If a candidate still manages to fail his third attempt, he will no longer be allowed to reapply unless he completes a CDPH-approved training program.
The process of reciprocity is only for individuals who are already listed in another state’s CNA. To be eligible, the applicant must have an active or current certification as well as a clean record. CNAs who are listed in the Abuse Registry are not allowed to work in a certified nursing facility. Since background checks are mandatory for anyone who wishes to be a nurse aide, applicants through this process must complete a Request for Live Scan Services.
The Nurse Aide Registry is a list of all nurse aides who are allowed to work in California. Employers verify the names and certificates of all their applicants before hiring them. If you wish to check your own record and status, you can visit http://www.apps.cdph.ca.gov/cvl/SearchPage.aspx or call (916) 327-2445 for the automated response number. Pressing 1 to 6 will allow you to speak with a CNA representative.
