Nursing aides help nurses provide nursing and nursing-related care to patients living in different healthcare facilities. Nursing aides perform simple nursing tasks such as taking the vital signs as well as help patients with their daily activities such as taking a bath, going to the toilet, eating, dressing up, cleaning their immediate environment, and getting from one place to another.
Since nursing aides work closely with the patients, it is important that all aspiring nursing aides learn how to properly take care of the patients. If you enroll in a state-approve CNA program, you will spend at least 80 hours learning about the basic nursing skills and important concepts. You will be taught about infection control, nutrition, proper documentation, communication skills, interpersonal relationships, safety and emergency care, and many more.
If you enroll in a facility-based training program you will be allowed to perform some of the duties as a certified nursing aide. The only problem with this is that you will only have 120 days from the start of your work to take the certification exam. When taking the certification exam, the payment for the testing fees will be paid by your employers.
The certification exam consists of a 100-item knowledge test and a 5 random nursing skill evaluation. Candidates must pass both tests to get a CNA certification from the NAR. The payment for both tests is $90. Those who are not working as nursing aides upon taking the exam can request for reimbursement within 1 year after getting certified from their first employers.
Each candidate is allowed to take the exam up to three times. These attempts are only valid within a year after completing one’s training. If you fail to get certified after your 3rd attempt or within a year after your training, you will be required to complete another training program.
for more information about requirements you can contact the Utah Nurse Aide Registry by phone at (801)547-9947. In addition their address is: 550 East 300 South, Kaysville, UT 84037 and they are open from Monday through Friday from 7:30 AM to 4:00 PM.
