The process of becoming a nursing aide starts with you enrolling in a state-approved CNA training program. The passing of the Nursing Home Reform Act now requires all nursing aide candidates to receive proper training before working as a long-term nursing aide. The Act’s goal is to provide improved quality care to patients in nursing homes and other healthcare settings; and requiring proper training is one way to help ensure this goal.
CNA programs in Wisconsin consist of 120 hours of training. Thirty-two of those hours are allocated to practical training in a licensed nursing facility. Training curriculum must have both theory and practical training portions to qualify for approval by the state’s Department of Health Services. Individuals who completed online courses are not deemed eligible by the state, since online course do not have practical training. Before students are allowed to take care of the patients, they must first learn the following topics:
– Respecting the patients’ rights.
– Promoting the patients’ independence.
– Infection control.
– Proper communication and interpersonal skills.
– Basic nursing procedures.
– Medical terminologies.
– Human anatomy.
Once you complete your training, you will be allowed to apply for the NNAAP Exam. Taking this exam is the final step in becoming a nursing aide. It consists of a written (oral) exam and a clinical skills test. Candidates must pass both tests within 3 attempts, or within one year after getting certified, whichever comes first, to gain entry into the Nurse Aide Registry and receive a license.
Names on the Registry, as well as CNA certifications, are only valid for two years. In order to keep your name on the Registry, you must renew your certification before it expires. To qualify for renewal you’ll have to work as a paid nursing aide for at least 8 hours while under the supervision of a registered nurse to qualify for renewal. No CNA is allowed to continue working with an expired certification.
