Before you can handle patients as a nurse aide, you have to receive first the proper training and education. You can get all this by enrolling and completing a CNA training course. The course that you select should be approved by the state so that you can be ensured that you will be able to take the license exams after you complete your training. You will need a license to find work since the state does not allow nurse aides without a certification or license to work in any healthcare institutions. State-approved programs offer at least 75 hour of classroom lectures and 100 hours of skills-training. Depending on the program you choose, it will take you about 6 months to complete your training.
Once you complete your training, you can then apply for the state’s license exams. You will need to submit the needed documents like ID photo, transcripts, fingerprint cards, and the payment for the background checks. You cannot proceed and take the exams if you have records that may prevent you from practicing in the state as a nurse aide. If you fail any test, including the background checks, you will not be entitled to any refunds.
