In order to work in the state of New York, one must be able to gain entry into the NAR. This can be done by being able to challenge and pass the competency evaluation exams which are given by Prometric. The exams are done in order to determine the competency of the nurse aide candidate in terms of knowledge and skills in taking care of the patients.
The first part of the exams is the written examination. The exam is consists of 60 questions that are all multiple-choice. Every candidate has a total of 90 minutes to answer all of the questions. All of the questions will be in multiple-choice format with only one correct answer. One can download a sample of a written exam at www.prometric.com/nurseaide. The questions on the sample test are formatted in the same way as of the actual exams. The practice exams however, only consist of 50 questions. Each practice exam costs $10 and can be paid online with the use of a credit or debit card.
The written exam is also offered by the testing centers orally. This is helpful for the candidates who are not that good with reading English. To have an oral exam, the candidate will need to request to take it during the time he applied for the competency exams. Nurse aide candidates who choose to take this test will be given a player and a headset to listen to the questions. The candidates are allowed to replay the questions if they have any trouble hearing them.
The second part of the exams is the clinical skills portion. The nurse aide candidate will be asked to perform 5 randomly selected nursing skills from a generated list of 22 skills that were taught during training. In order to pass this, the candidate will need to perform all 5 skills satisfactorily. These skills will be performed in front of a nurse aide evaluator who will have a list of checkpoints that the candidate must perform in while doing the skills. The list of the skills can be found in the link that was provided.
