The first step in becoming a nursing assistant is to enroll in a state-approved Nurse Aide Training Program. The CNA classes that you choose should be approved by the Georgia Medical Care Foundation. This is the private contractor selected by the Department of Community Health to oversee the Nurse Aide Registry and all the training and competency exam programs for this state. Most of the programs located here can be finished within a matter of 24 weeks of training. It is very important that when you complete your training, you will be able to meet the hiring qualifications of certified Medicaid healthcare facilities.
Certified programs are required by the state to offer 85 hours of training which would already include no less than 24 hours of clinical duties. All students should experience classroom lectures on the Fundamentals of Nursing, have laboratory skills training before proceeding to the clinical rotation. A student cannot go to duty if he/she does not get a 100% rating in the lab.
After the training program, you can then apply for the license exams. You will need to send in your application form and the required documents. These documents include transcripts, proof of training, two passport sized pictures, immunization records, and the payment for the different fees.
