The completion of a state-approved CNA training course is an important part of becoming a nurse aide. Before you handle patients as one, you must first know how to do so. These courses are being offered by colleges, community training centers, and other institutions. To complete your training, you must spend at least 75 hours of classroom lectures and 100 hours of skills training. You will be taught in different skills like assisting in ambulation, feeding, bathing or bed bath, perform passive ROM exercises, catheter care, vital signs taking, and other basic nursing care skills.
Once you complete your training, you can then take on the state’s license exams. The examinations for this state are conducted by Prometric. To apply, you have to send your transcript, fingerprint cards, ID photo, passport sized pictures, and the payment for all the test fees. You will also need to pass the background checks in order to proceed. These checks will be done at both federal and state levels.
Failing in any test including the background checks will not entitle you to a refund. If you do pass, you will be given your license 14 days after you take the exams. This will depend on how complete the documents you submitted during your application. Since the releasing of transcripts take a few days to process, this requirement has been the cause for the delays for the release of the exam results in may occasions. For more information about the exams, you can visit www.prometric.com or call the Nurse Aide Registry at (850) 245-4567.
