Becoming a nursing assistant, especially in the state of Oklahoma is becoming to be one of the best career options that are available right now. The demand for this profession is continuously on the rise not only in this state, but throughout the country. This increase in demand is expected by many experts to continue to increase up to 2016.
The process of becoming a nursing assistant is easy once you know what to do. First of all, you will need to enroll in a state-approved CNA training program. The state requires you to complete a minimum of 75 hours of training in a classroom for lectures and an additional of 16 hours of training in a licensed nursing facility. The basic courses for a CNA will cover you with the basic nursing skills, emergency procedures, infection control, personal care, mental health, rehabilitation, medical terminologies, patient’s rights and independence, and the human anatomy.
After you complete your training, will then become eligible to apply for the competency evaluation exams in order to get your license and gain entry into the Nurse Aide Registry. If you are a nursing student or a nursing graduate, you will no longer be required to take additional training in order to apply for the exam. Nursing graduate will be required to provide proof of their training and education such as a copy of their diploma or transcript of records.
The competency examination in Oklahoma is given by the state’s Department of Health. As stated by federal law, the evaluation exams will always be composed of two parts, a written/oral exam and a clinical skills test. To get your license, you must be able to pass all the tests.
Only those who are on the Registry and have an active status there are allowed to work in a long-term care facility. Another way of gaining entry into the Registry is by applying for reciprocity, which is offered to CNA’s that are registered in a different state.
A CNA status or license will remain the same for a maximum of 2 years. In order to continue your eligibility to work as a nursing assistant, you will have to renew it before it expires. To be qualified for renewal, you will have to work for at least 8 hours within that time as a paid license health personnel.
