If you want to start a fulfilling career in the field of medicine, you should consider becoming a nursing assistant. Nursing assistants work closely with patients, often during the entire day. They provide routine care like vital signs taking, and mostly assist the patients with their daily activities such as bathing, dressing, eating, ambulating, toileting, any many more.
This profession is currently in demand throughout the United States. Depending on where the working area is, you can make an average of $27,000 in a year. California is one of the states where the demand for nursing assistants is the highest. You will easily find work as soon as you become a certified nursing assistant.
If you have never been certified before as a nursing assistant, the only way to get certified is to challenge the National Nurse Aide Assessment Program exam or NNAAP exam. This exam consists of a written/oral knowledge test and a practical skills evaluation. The state has authorized Person VUE to help schedule and conduct the exam. If you wish to find out more, you can go to www.pearsonvue.com and download a copy of the Candidate Handbook.
In order to be eligible to apply you must successfully complete a CDPH-approved CNA program. The programs in California take longer to complete than other states. Programs in CA are required to offer a minimum of 150 hours of training. The training hours are still divided into lectures and practical skills training in a nursing home or a long-term care facility. Depending on the facility that you enroll in, it can take you from 2 to 6 months to complete.
To get certified as a nursing assistant, you must pass all the tests of the NNAAP exam. If there are no technical problems, you can expect the results to be released on your exam day. If you pass all the tests, you can expect your CNA certification to arrive at your address within 10 business days after passing.
