The first step in becoming a nursing assistant is to enroll in a state-certified training program. When you enroll, you will be spending a minimum of 75 hours of lectures of the different theories and another 100 hours for on-the-job training. During that time, you will be under the guidance and supervision of certified instructors and clinical supervisors.
There is also a final exam that you will need to pass in order to complete your training. Even if you were able to finish the number of hours for duties and lectures, without the final exam, your training is still incomplete. If you leave the program, you will be given 6 months to get back and complete it.
The final exam is composed of a written and a skills evaluation on the different nursing skills that were taught to you during your training. Out of all of those, you will only be asked to perform a selected few. To pass the final exam, you must be able to pass both parts of the test. For more information, you can follow this link: http://health.mo.gov/safety/cnaregistry/faqs.php#cmt1.
Those who pass the examination are included on the registry for nurse aides and given an active status. Now when potential employers search for your name in the database it will show you as being certified and eligible to be hired. To keep your license in good standing you will need to show work verification every 24 months. This is done by getting proof from your employer and submitting it to the registry.
