The NNAAP or the National Nurse Aide Assessment Program is an examination program that was designed to test out the competency of the individuals who wish to become a nurse aide. All those who want to become a CNA, are required to take this exam.
Each state has its own authorized administrator of the exams. For Mississippi, that administrator is Pearson Vue. The NNAAP exams are composed of two parts, the written and the skills evaluation exams. For those who have problems with the written exams, the state also allows them to take an oral examination instead. In order to get into the Registry, the applicant must be able to pass all of the tests.
The written exam is composed of 70 multiple-choice questions. As for the oral exam, there will be two parts; one is the 60 item multiple-choice exam while the other 10 will be about a reading comprehension exam. To take the oral exam instead of the written, you will need to request for it when you apply for the exams.
In the skills evaluation, every applicant will be given 25 minutes to perform 5 randomly selected nurse aide skills. To pass this portion, the applicant must be able to perform all the skills satisfactorily. While performing, the applicant will be watched and scored by a nurse aide evaluator. You can call Pearson Vue to speak with someone about any questions you have regarding testing or to schedule an exam date by calling 1-888-204-6213.
Once certified and include on the state registry you will still need to maintain your status so it remains in good standing. To do this you will need to renew your license every two years by submitting verification of work. You can learn more about requirements of a certified nurse aide by calling the Mississippi State Department of Health at 601-364-1100.
