Becoming a nursing aide is one of the best ways for you to get started in health care. There is an increasing demand for the profession and it is believed that this demand will continue to increase for the next coming years.
To get started in the state of Montana you need to enroll in a state-approved CNA training program and comply with the state’s other requirements. The training program only lasts for a few weeks and costs around five hundred dollars. You will be able to finish it in a few weeks and if you pass the state competency exam, you would immediately be entered in the state’s nurse aide registry and be eligible for work. You need to pass the state and federal criminal background check first before your certification can be released.
If you feel that you do not want to work as a nurse aide, then you may still get some work as a NA instructor. When you apply, you will need to submit to the Registry the completed application form. You can download a copy at http://www.dphhs.mt.gov/cna/CNAInstructorApplication.pdf.
To be qualified as an instructor, you must have experience or have taken a course in teaching adults or supervising aides. Program coordinators and clinical instructors must have at least 2 years of experience as a nurse, where at least one of those years were spent in a long term care facility. When you apply, you will need to indicate whether you are applying to become a clinical instructor, program coordinator, or a supplemental instructor.
